BE-RBINS-VZ-Amphibia

Frogs in the vertebrate collection

The amphibian collection contains more than 135,000 specimens. We have type material for 109 species. The majority of the specimens were collected by herpetologist Gaston Fran├žois de Witte on his missions to the national parks in Congo (between 1933 and 1958). On many more recent missions over the years herpetologist Philippe Kok has amassed a beautiful and valuable collection of amphibians, containing species from Guyana (South America).
