The frogs start out calling for their mates, Alice night frog (Nyctibatrachus cf. aliciae) waits for its mate

Millions of butterflies start migrating from the wet, cold ghats to the warmer plains and thousands end up getting killed on the road.

A road passing through a forest almosts fragments the forest into two, causing road kills and also fragmenting the habitat. Each day hundreds of animals, thousands of insects and amphibians get killed on the road all over India.
