I see there is a list of reptiles found in Kruger, but could someone please direct me as to where I may find a list of reptiles found in the KTP?

While I'm here, I found a list on another website, but it lists Black Mamba, so I'm questioning its validity...are they really found in KTP???

Thanks!

I don't think there is a reptile list for the KTP on the SANP website yet, but I'll check again.

As for your "list on another website"; they could be correct... my snake book shows a narrow strip of BM distribution which might overlap with the Botswana part of the KTP.
As far as the SA part of the KTP is concerned, I don't think they occur there, but will double-check and let you know.

Thank you, Jose. I'm trying to put identifications to photos, and knowing whether or not a species is even found there would make the process much easier. I do appreciate you taking the time to reply. Anybody else know where I may find such a list? I have the Mammal one posted earlier for KTP. Thanks!

I suppose there should be a species list somewhere on the face of the planet...

Interesting thing is that on the Nature Reserve where I operate, I have found very, very few snakes this season, so far only 2 Puff Adders (Bitis arietans).

But more rock monitors than ever before... Is it the same in KTP (which lies a few hundred km north of us)?

Any feedback?
