The documented cave herpetofauna comprised three species of anurans
(Bufonidae), one species of snake (Colubridae), one species of flying lizard (Agamidae), one species of gecko (Gekkonidae), four species of skink (Scincidae), and one species of monitor lizard (Varanidae).
In 2000, Brodman (2003) conducted anuran
call surveys in both Posey and Spencer Counties during times when H.
Southern California's anuran
diversity is dominated by species of special conservation concern.
species were detected only by the traditional survey and one species (Fowler's Toad [Anaxyrus fowleri]) was recorded solely during the Bio Blitz.
During the anuran
larval stage, the intestines are long but lack the complexity of the adult intestinal tract.
Researchers documented 10 species of herpetofauna, including three species of anurans
(Anaxyrus woodhousii, Pseudacris maculata, Litliobates blairi), three species of turtles (Chelydra serpentina, Chrysemys picta, Apalone spinifera), two species of lizards (P.

A simplified table for staging anuran
embryos and larvae with notes on identification.
Aquatic sites were sampled by capturing adults and larvae by hand or using nets and by monitoring anuran
Growth and longevity by skeletochronological analysis in Mantidactylus microtympanum, a rainforest anuran
from southern Madagascar.
This study was performed to monitor the metamorphosis of Bufo valliceps from roadside ditches treated with a mosquito larvicide containing methoprene, an insect growth regulator (IGR), to determine if this chemical is a cause of anuran
malformations in the field.

Seasonal variation in age structure and spatial distribution of a savanna larval anuran
assemblage in Central Brazil.
Although it is recognized that cloacal glands exist in some anuran
taxa (Van Dijk, 1959), we followed Sever's (1991a) hypothesis that these glands are probably not homologous with those of salamanders.
larvae primarily respire through their skin (Hillman et al.
