Reaching moderate sizes of 75-85 mm, it is not immediately obvious that the Togo slippery frog is a close relative of the largest frog in the world, the Goliath frog (Conraua goliath), which grows to 400 mm. This species is forest-dependent, and lives in or near fast-flowing water, where its tadpoles develop. Recent surveys have failed to locate this species in its known range in Ghana and there are fears that it has undergone a localised, or complete, extinction. Most of the forest habitat within the small range of this species has been lost as a result of agricultural expansion, logging, and human settlements. Stream sedimentation may be having an adverse affect upon breeding.
