Montane Cordillera

The Montane Cordillera Ecozone is home to 12 species of reptiles including turtles, lizards and snakes. Three of these are found nowhere else in Canada: Pygmy Short-horned Lizard, Skilton's Skink and Northern Desert Nightsnake. It is the only ecozone in Canada with 3 species of lizards, although the Pygmy Short-horned Lizard is believed to be extirpated.
