Gaia Guide
5.12 68.0mb
Whether you are a keen herper or just have a passing interest in Australia's diverse reptile and amphibian fauna, this field guide will be a useful addition to your mobile device. The data has been crowd sourced via the Gaia Guide website (

Species include:
211 snakes
30 monitor lizards
83 dragons
432 skinks
43 legless lizards
152 geckos
2 crocodiles
33 turtles (marine and freshwater)
233 frogs (and one nefarious toad)

You can use the app for both identification in the field and the capture and reporting of your own records. If you register on the Gaia Guide website, your records can be uploaded to the server where they are passed on to the CSIRO's Atlas of Living Australia. From there, they are contributed to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, contributing directly to knowledge of species distributions.

Records can be augmented with both photos and sound recordings captured using your device. This evidence is useful in confirming identifications and quality captures can also be included in the descriptions published in later versions of this app.

If you find errors or can improve species descriptions, please consider registering on the website and contributing to the field guide descriptions. Additional photos are particularly welcome. Not all species descriptions include photos. This is especially the case for the huge number of skinks, legless lizards, and geckos found in Australia. The limited descriptions are included in the guide to ensure users are not given an inappropriate level of confidence in their specimen IDs because the range of alternatives has been artificially limited.
