Familiar reptiles

Post by SU_reptile » Wed Dec 13, 2006 7:31 pm

Hi there everyone. I have a great request. Would you be so kind as to write down how many species of reptiles there is in your country. I believe you will find such information in most books about fauna of your country.
I would appreciate such information. THX
