The Periya bush frog or Sanjappa's bush frog (Raorchestes sanjappai) is a frog. It lives in India. Scientists saw it in Periya in the Western Ghat mountains, 750 meters above sea level.[2][3][1][4]

Scientists do not know much about this frog. It looks like other frogs in Raorchestes. Like other frogs in Raorchestes, it hatches out of its egg as a small frog and never swims as a tadpole.[1]
