Frogs of Coorg Print E-mail
  The Western Ghats are a chain of mountains running from Bombay to the southern tip of India. They are home to some of the most diverse frog communities on Earth. Over 90% of the species there are found nowhere else, and there is evidence that individual hilltops harbour unique species. We produced a multimedia guide to the amphibians of Coorg that includes advertisment calls and details of larval stages. Visit the Frogs of Coorg Website!>

They need a constant supply of fruit but lack the wings that allow other frugivores to forage in different forest fragments. Large and immobile, the butaan depends on a very narrow range of foods.
