  1. What kind of reptilian life is present in Dominica? I’m positive it’s very diverse.

  2. Lots of different herps, not quite as diverse as many of the tropical rainforests, but that is because it’s a small isolated island. Anyway, we will hopefully be coming across some Lesser Antillean Iguanas, boa constrictors, Dominican amievas, 2 species of anoles, 2 species of Sphaero geckos, turnip tailed geckos, some skinks, Leeward Racers, Leeward ground snake, mountain chickens (a frog), and several small tree frogs. Keep on eye on our species page where we will be listing all the species we find. http://ucmarine.wetpaint.com/
