Eleven species of reptiles are found in the Atlantic Maritime Ecozone. All of these species are also found in the adjacent Boreal Shield or Mixedwood Plains. Some of these species such as the Eastern Painted Turtle and Eastern Gartersnake are widespread in this ecozone while others, such as Blanding's Turtle and Northern Ribbonsnake are only found in isolated pockets.
