Reptiles & Amphibians

Sri Lanka’s Herpetological Diversity is astounding, and has some of the richest bio-diversities in Asia.

When it comes to amphibians, Sri Lanka has over 116 species and out of which over 96 species are endemic to the island. Adding to this, the loss of habitats has also resulted in many of these species to be endangered, with over 20% of the islands amphibian fauna being lost over the past century and around 50% on the brink of extinction. Despite these set backs dedicated scientists keep discovering new species to science to this day.

The reptile diversity is equally impressive with the island with over 210 known species on the island out of which over 125 are endemic and found no-where else in the world. Found in all habitats across the island, even here there are many new species being discovered every year.
