A Key to Kansas Amphibians and Reptiles

In progress, key needs to be refined, images added, and larval frogs added. Current form modified from Collins et. al. 2010, Ireland (1983), Altig and Ireland (1984), and Altig (2006). Be advised that not all specimens fit any single key and that keys are primarily laboratory aids and may require equipment (e.g. stereo microscopes) that are impractical for field use.
