Within this book Schiøtz outlines all recently noted species and subspecies of the African Treefrogs. He is engaged in these animals for more than 40 years and his adaptations, resulting from the 1970´s, of the West- and East African species are being considered as herpetologic milestones.

The present adaptation of continental Africa is diplaying the large variety of the frog´s colours for the first time on 270 colour images in a formidable way. Furthermore the aspects and questions of the domestic keeping in terrariums is being covered.
