Fauna

Apart from the botanical importance of the site, the KRCA is also of great faunal significance. Eleven frog species are thought to inhabit KRCA including the critically endangered Micro frog (Microbatrachella capensis), the endangered Cape Platanna (Xenopus gilli) and Cape Rain Frog (Breviceps gibbosus) all of which are endemic to the South Western Cape, rendering KRCA the hottest hotspot for amphibian life on the Cape Flats. At least 10 mammal species  and a presumed 17 reptiles, including the Cape Terrapin (Pelomedusa subrufa) and the rare Aurora House Snake (Lamprophis aurora) have made KRCA their home.
