Herpetological Inventory of Sirdibas, Bihi and Prok VDCs of Manaslu Conservation Area, Gorkha District, Nepal

The Manaslu Conservation Area (MCA) is a biodiversity rich spot that harbors a wide variety of local flora and fauna, thus herpetofauna fall no apart to this diversity. A field study was carried out at the tail end of April 2012 for 15 days with the purposes of conducting an inventory of local herpetofauna in three Village Development Committees (VDCs) of MCA, recording their composition and abundance, studying their distribution pattern, relationship between species’ abundance, elevation and ambient temperature, and ethnoherpetology of the area.
