  • The “boatwhistle” calls of Sanopus astrifer and Batrachoides gilberti, two toadfish species from Belize, are described for the first time. These descriptions add to the small number of toadfish species sounds known to date (6 out of 79 species). Both Belize toadfishes produced multiple notes per call, unlike most other toadfish species which produce a single-note call (with the exception of Opsanus beta). S. astrifer produced significantly more notes per call than B. gilberti (p < .05), and was… CONTINUE READING
