Reptiles • Reptilia
Australian reptiles contain a diverse group of animals, found throughout the continent, with three of the four orders of reptiles native to Australia. These include Testudines, Squamata and Crocodilia. With over 860 species, the most diverse group is Squamata, more commonly known as lizards and snakes. The largest reptile is the Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) and is native to Australia.

Whilst many of our larger reptiles in Queensland and the northern end of Australia are have been put in a precarious position danger due to the spread of the introduced Cane Toad (most wildlife that eat the cane toad die from the toxin), there are still a number of opportunities to see these reptiles in the wild, in addition to the conservation centres and wildlife sanctuaries around the country.

We hope you enjoy the information and images we present here of some of the reptiles to be seen in Australia.
