Amphibians

The table shows the number of possible sites for each species and the number of chances available to try for them on each itinerary. The list is based on The Fauna of Sri Lanka. Status of Taxonomy, Reserch and Conservation. 2006. Editad by C N B Bambaradeniya. IUCN

Note: If the number of ‘chances’ for a species is more than the number of ‘sites’ this indicates that the possibility of finding that species is significantly high and thus it can be expected to be seen on most of our tours. Such species usually seen on most tours are also indicated with: #
