reptile & amphibian species

Reptiles are animals with leathery, scaly skin that lay eggs and need to bask in the sun to raise their body temperature. There are many reptiles in the park. Most are harmless lizards or turtles, but there are also snakes that can be quite dangerous. If you see a snake at the park, walk away slowly and keep out of any long grass.


Amphibians are animals like frogs that live both in and out of the water. They need water to breed, and for their tadpoles to swim before they develop lungs and can leave the water. Amphibians are considered an indicator of an ecosystem’s health because they are very sensitive to water pollution. If there are lots of amphibians, it means an ecosystem is healthy.
