Full Text:



Two different call types are produced by male Kassina senegalensis (Dumeril and Bibron) in breeding aggregations. The most common of these is the mating call. A territorial call is also produced, and its production is dependent on the close proximity of other calling males. Mention is made of the ovipositional behaviour of this species.
