About the Author

    I live in FNQ rainforest and have loved the frogs that breed here. I have several books but they are always only about Frogs until this one never enough information about tadpoles and eggs and embryo. I am learning so much from this tome and and still filled with wonder at what Marion Anstis has achieved.
