A Guide to the Amphibians
and Reptiles of California
California's Reptile and Amphibian Diversity
As of January 2014, at least 250 kinds of reptiles and amphibians can be found living in the wild in California, including 72 endemics (forms found only in California) and 17 introduced alien species. (I have included a few aliens that are not typically included in state lists.)
(Go here to see a list of currently undescribed herps and some that could occur in California.)
Taxonomy fluctuates so these totals will continually change with the discovery of new species and subspecies, or with the re-classification of species and subspecies. I will keep updating this list as changes happen.
