British Columbia

British Columbia (along with Ontario) has more families of reptiles than any other province. It also has more species of lizards than anywhere else in Canada (although the Pygmy Short-horned Lizard has been extirpated from the province). Many of BC's reptiles are found nowhere else in Canada. The variety of habitats and moderate climate all help ensure the diversity of BC's reptiles.
