About
This purpose of this website is to generate interest in the natural history of the herpetofauna of Trinidad and Tobago, as well as help identify the species found on these islands. Photos and text will be added over time. If you have something you would like to contribute please contact us. This site is a work in progress. As we gather information and photographs they will be added. Pages for species without photos or information are place holders. Species with a page in the University of the West Indies Animal Guide, a student written document, have a link at the bottom of these accounts.
typhonius
While we attempt to keep the names and systematics of these species up to date, there have been numerous changes since the publication of Amphibians and Reptiles of Trinidad and Tobago in 1997. The frog shown above is an excellent example. It is a new metamorph of what is now called Trachycephalus typhonius, in 1997 it was known as Phrynohyas venulosa. The names on this site will be updated, but probably not as quickly as those on the Blog, which is more easily update and contains a set of references to the T&T herpetofauna, a list of synonymies, and other useful information. A link to the Blog can be found on the menu bar at the top of each page.
