Prairie

The Prairie Ecozone has the highest diversity of reptiles in western Canada with 13 species including turtles, lizards and snakes. While the turtles and the Red-sided and Plains Gartersnakes have a very limited distribution on the prairies, there are other species which are unique to this ecozone: Greater Short-horned Lizard, Northern Prairie Skink, and the Plains Hog-nosed Snake.
