Strongylopus kitumbeine stream frogStrongylopus Kitumbeine (also known as the Kitumbeine stream frog) is a frog species belonging to the Pyxicephalidae family. It gets its name from its only natural habitat, Mount Kitumbeine, and is endemic to Tanzania.

The species thrives in montane Juniperus woodlands and tussock grasslands at elevations of 2,100–2,800 m (6,900–9,200 ft) above sea level, along semi-permanent and seasonal streams and around ephemeral pools. It may even survive in badly damaged areas of the forest. Breeding occurs in open water. While it is widespread within its narrow area, it has been designated as “Vulnerable” because to risks from livestock grazing and fire, as well as its limited habitat.
