We have compiled a list of all Ontario amphibians & reptiles (aka herps) on this page. Additionally, species-at-risk are identified along with their current assessment status by COSEWIC (as of May 2023). Status categories are as follows: “Not at risk” (NAR), “Data Deficient” (DD), “Special Concern” (SC), “Threatened” (T), “Endangered’ (E), “Extirpated” (XT), and “Extinct” (X). Species which have not been assessed yet are labeled as “NA”.
