Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


Hylarana darlingi inhabits a wide geographic range in Southern Africa, and a gamut of habitat types spanning dry forests, moist forests, flooded grassland and savanna; moreover, the breeding system is adapted to both lotic (still water) and lentic (moving water) systems. The reproductive style features ova-deposition in freshwater, leading to a swimming benthic tadpole phase. While moderately abundant in population, the species is experiencing threats of habitat loss and habitat fragmentation due to the burgeoning human population and concomitant agricultural land conversion and charcoal production.
