Method step description:

  1. 1. Amphibians and reptiles were collected using line transects during night and day surveys and were collected by hand when encountered. 2. The specimens were labeled in the field and after identification a collection number was assigned to each specimen. 3. In some cases tissue samples were collected for DNA analysis. 4. The specimens were first preserved in formaldehyde and then transferred into 70% Ethanol. 5. All specimens were identified to species level using literature and keys.
