Periodical Index - Mantellids (Mantellas)

A guide to mantella frog articles appearing in herpetogical periodicals over the past few years

The following is a guide to mantella-related articles that have appeared within herpetological magazines within the last few years. It is an ongoing project, ie I am effectively cataloguing these entries myself from the actual magazines, some of which are harder to get hold of than others (especially when they are no longer being published!). I hope however that some people will find it useful, especially if researching a single species or looking for some care guidance.

This group of frogs is without among the most popular in the terrarium hobby, and this is reflected in the large number of articles on them. This list does not claim to be exhaustive but does encompass many of the articles published since the mid- to late 1990s.

Note that in the past 10-15 years, some of the Latin genus names have been changed or added to. Therefore if you can't find the name that you think a certain species goes under, look down the whole list.
