oa Madoqua - The Anura of the Etosha National Park



A survey of the Etosha National Park was carried out to compile a checkIist of its amphibian fauna. Out of the approximately 127 anuran species in southern Africa, only 10 were found within the boundaries of Etosha. One of these, Hildebrandria ornata, is represented by one specimen, which is only the third such frog to be recorded from South West Africa. Rather surprising is the absence of Xenopus. The taxonomy, distribution, habits and breeding behaviour of each species occurring in the area are given.
