Reptiles and Frogs Reptiles and Frogs Download PDF version

Overview

Many kinds (species) of reptiles (turtles, snakes and lizards) and frogs are found within the Coastal Wilderness Region. They are exciting animals and learning about them and their behaviour and finding them in the wild (or even your backyard) can be very exciting. People often think that all small skinks are the same; in fact there are many different species with some of the most amazing colours, stripes and external structures. Within a single species there may be great variety in colour and markings. 

On Atlas of Life in the Coastal Wilderness (ALCW) Nature Map you will soon find descriptions and photos of each species and tips on how to identify single species and where to find them. On "Frequently asked questions" (under About) you can find tips on photographing reptiles (and frogs). Read this so that you can take good photos without harm to the animals or yourself.

By taking photos and reporting sightings you will be adding to our knowledge of these animals, many of which are threatened or rare. This is why we call it 'citizen science'. It is also a great way to enjoy nature and learn about the scientific study of nature.  

Reptiles and frogs are divided into subgroups: Snakes (14 species), Skinks (33), Dragons (6), Legless lizards (5), Geckos (2), Monitors (2), Turtles (2) and Frogs (30). It will take no time before you can tell the difference between groups and know the answer to many questions such as: how do you tell the difference between Legless lizards and snakes?

Happy Nature Mapping of reptiles and frogs.
