Ishanda Senevirathna recently launched a photographic guide on several frog species found in Nuwara Eliya, called ‘Peeping frogs of Nuwara Eliya’, possibly the first guide of this kind in the country. The guide contains basic anatomical, physiological and embryological details on frogs, including, frog families in Sri Lanka and the frog’s life cycle in detail. It also contains suggestions for conservation methods of these species, mainly focusing on frog friendly gardening methods. Then the guide elaborates on frog watching and ethics to observe in the process, with guest experiences of the frog watching tour at Jetwing St Andrew’s. The guide concludes with pictorial descriptions of several species of frogs found in Nuwara Eliya, including montane hour glass tree frog, montane frog, half webbed pug snout frog, small eared shrub frog, Horton Plains shrub frog, Schmarda’s shrub frog, leaf nesting shrub frog and common house toad. The simple style followed in the guide would convert even laymen into a frog enthusiast.
