AMPHIBIAN AND REPTILE HIGH DIVERSITY IN THE GAMBA COMPLEX OF GABON, AFRICA



The Gamba Complex in Gabon, is a national protected wildland mosaic, mix of tropical forest, savanna, fresh water, and marine environments. It holds a high diversity of amphibians (75 species) and reptiles (84 species; including 11 turtles, 3 crocodiles, 2 amphisbaenians, 23 lizards, and 49 snakes), by far the richest herpetofauna assemblage for this African country. Although the herpetofauna of Gabon is very rich, it is also one of the least known and potentially one of the most endangered.
