New Zealand Frogs and Reptiles

Author(s): Brian Gill

Fauna | Educational

New Zealand is the most isolated landmass of its size and few types of amphibians reached its shores. The only groups occurring naturally in New Zealand are frogs, tuataras, two families of lizards (geckos and skinks), sea-snakes and marine turtles. The tuataras and native frogs are archaic animals of exceptional scientific interest. This guide helps the reader - by means of photographs, identification keys and descriptive text - to identify the 59 living species of frogs and reptiles that occur wild in New Zealand.
