Reptiles and Amphibians

Reptiles and Amphibians

Reptiles and amphibians represent an important facet of Southeastern fauna. The presence or absence of reptiles and amphibians, collectively known as herptiles, can serve as bio-indicators for researchers, developers, and educators to assess the health of an ecosystem. As well as providing an important food source for larger predatory animals, reptiles and amphibians play a vital role in keeping pest insect and rodent populations in check. The collection at Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center offers a wonderful sampling of the rich diversity of herpetofauna in our region.
