Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland has only 8 species of amphibians, 2 of which are not native to the province (the Western Chorus Frog and the Northern Green Frog). The 6 remaining species are native only to Labrador. There are no native species found on the island, but the Eastern American Toad, the Western Chorus Frog, the Northern Green Frog, the Northern Leopard Frog and the Wood Frog have been introduced and have spread. Newfoundland has fewer native species of amphibians than any other province. All of the species found in Newfoundland are also found in Ontario, Québec and parts of the Maritimes.
