Some observations on the natural history of tadpoles of Rhinophrynus dorsalis Dumeril and Bibron



Some observations on the natural history of tadpoles of Rhinophrynus dorsalis Dumeril and Bibron



Herpetologica 17(2): 73-79



Specimens which were studied were taken from 2 water-holes of different type at Tikal, Guatemala. The Rhinophrynus tadpoles were never observed swimming about singly, but always occurred in tightly massed aggregates of different sizes. Sometimes such a mass would break up momentarily, but always form again. No evidence of cannibalism was obtained. Some data on size and growth are given.
