Abstract

The study was conducted in the North-West University Botanical Gardens where all 18 ponds provide habitat for the river frogs. A total of 117 river frogs were marked with pit-tags. Their movements in the garden, between and within ponds were monitored over a period of 12 months. Results showed that river frogs are active throughout the year and that males are more territorial than females.
