Amphibians

Everyone loves the cute and fluffy looking animals, but not everyone is so fond of the wildlife that has cold blood and no fur. Personally, we find amphibians to be very interesting and definitely photogenic. In fact, most amphibians seem to have a permanent smile.

DSC06887Sheoak Ridge is home to a large number of species due to its diversity of habitats and locality. We are in the process of creating a list of amphibian species, and in the most part it’s been quite straight forward. We do lots of night walks in the wet season as the forest literally comes alive with the frog chorus.

IMG_6042We’re pretty sure we’re almost there with our amphibian list, but we’ll certainly update this list if we find other species here.

The following is a list of common names. See the detailed xls document for comprehensive species details: VertebratefaunalistSheoakridge2
