Herpetofauna of the Phnom Kulen National Park, northern Cambodia - An annotated checklist
We report the findings of the first herpetofaunal surveys conducted in Phnom Kulen National Park, Siem Reap Province, northern Cambodia. During three intensive survey periods in 2008, 2009 and 2011, 86 species (25 amphibians and 61 reptiles) were recorded and data on their natural history were collected. One of the species, Kaloula mediolineata Smith, 1917, represents a new country record for Cambodia. Our analyses of stomach contents provide the first insight into the feeding ecology of several species. Our study is the first long term survey of amphibians and reptiles in a Cambodian protected area outside of the Cardamom Mountains. It shows the second highest number of species recorded nationally when compared with available data for other protected areas in Cambodia.
