A Complete Guide to the Frogs of Southern Africa
By: du Preez & Carruthers
ISBN:978-1-177007-446-0

A fantastic book for anyone interested in Southern African Frogs

The book starts with general information on Frogs; Life Cycle, Habits etc
Then the bulk of the book deals with the individual species: Photos, distribution maps, habitat, info on the specific tadpole
And there is also a disc that comes with the book that has the calls of the various species.

Thank you Yoda :thumbs_up: . This sounds like a very interesting book. I like the idea of the disc that is included in the book with the calls of the different species of frogs.

yoda, thank you for highlighting this book. :thumbs_up:

My mother-in-law dislikes frogs and freaks out, perhaps a good pressie for her :hmz: :naughty:
No, I get on very well with her, so will rather keep the peace. :lol:

As yet, I haven't listed to the cd, but do intend to in due course.
