Can someone give me a list of reptiles that live in the Arctic.
it's only four species of lizard (Example : Vivaporous lizard)
What are the other 3 species?
I've found the names four reptiles living within the Arctic Circle:
Arctic snow lizard (I couldn't find a Latin name for this animal)
Viviparous lizard (Zootaca vivipara)
European adder (Vipera berus)
Common garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis)
I must admit that I hadn't heard of the Arctic snow lizard before.
the Arctic snow lizard is not a real animal, so not surprising you hadn't heard of it before.
I wondered about that. The 'Arctic snow lizard' appeared in a few websites, including a map of where it lives and details of what it ate, but there was no Latin name anywhere, so I wasn't sure if it existed or not. I saw the website that stated that the only Arctic reptiles were four species of lizard, even though I remember reading years ago that the European adder lives within the Arctic Circle. At least I didn't assume that the Arctic monkeys are distantly related to Japanese macaques.
I believe Arctic Monkeys are a musical band.
If the Arctic Snow Lizard does not exist, what would be the fourth arctic reptile then?
Separate names with a comma.
