Endemic or Native Amphibian Species of Pakistan

Paa_sternosignata01

Reptiles usually get a bad reputation due to them being sometimes dangerous or intimidating, but amphibians don’t even get a reputation as people don’t seem to care for them at all. Amphibians aren’t paid much attention and are thought to be able to survive in all conditions, which cannot be further from the truth. Amphibians are especially vulnerable to environmental degradation and climate change. Pakistan has a lot of amphibians, thanks to the variety of biomes in Pakistan, but sadly many of those aren’t well studied or even identified yet. Pakistan has some known species of amphibians that are endemic to Pakistan. These are the species of amphibians that are not found in any other region of the world, or are found in very few other locations. We have collected a list of as many endemic amphibians of Pakistan as we could, so check out the list..
