Abstract:

Our survey was conducted in the forest habitats and on the border of the river and road. Additional materials were obtained from different traps (Pitfall and Vervet net). In total, 16 frog morphospecies/representatives of species were collected and recorded. Most of the specimens of amphibians were collected in the forest habitats. Two specimens of Hemisus were collected in the primary forest.
