ocellated-lizardWe are still in the midst of compiling our reptile and amphibian checklist. As with other wildlife in our area, research and data collection is ongoing. If you are able to add any species to our list, please do not hesitate to use the contact us page on this site.

In the meantime we hope this list proves useful to visitor and researcher alike. The list is printable and can be used as a source of reference whilst in this area. We would be grateful for any sighting reports and ask for details such as location, habitat and activity. Please also include the date of the sighting/s. If it is easier, why not use the ABS Forum to report your sightings? If you are planning to visit in the future, then the Forum is also a place to ask for information. Membership of this Forum is free!
