Southern California Reptiles and Amphibians by Earthrover Software
DescriptionCalifornia is literally crawling with reptiles and amphibians--and this app is your key to identifying and understanding them! SoCalHerps is a comprehensive field guide to reptiles and amphibians (herpetofauna) of southern California. It has over 2300 color photos and detailed text descriptions for 132 species--covering all native species and the most common introduced species. The app also includes audio recordings for each frog species.
Each species description includes notes on identification, behavior, habitat, range, hazards, range, similar species, taxonomic notes, and references. You can browse animals by scientific or common name or using a thumbnail browser--the same user interface that has gotten good reviews in other Earthrover guides. The app also includes a glossary, built-in help, an introduction, and a favorites list.
Whether you live in Southern California or are visiting, this app will let you quickly identify any reptile or amphibian you come across, whether it's in the middle of the desert or in your own backyard.
