Abstract

Fifty-one species of reptiles, comprising one tortoise, 31 lizards and 19 snakes, are recorded. Habitat types and estimates of abundance are given. The major effects of human settlement on the mammal, bird and reptile fauna of the Warwick district have been reduction of range of most forest-dwelling species and some extension of range for inhabitants of open country, with little change for most wetland species. Few, if any, species have disappeared. The main factors involved in survival of the fauna have been the availability of native habitat, including National Parks and Fauna Sanctuaries, and the tolerant attitude of the rural population to most native species.
