British Columbia is a northern province, meaning there is not much consistent warmth for warm-blooded reptiles such as snakes, turtles, and lizards to live in safely. Still, some species exist here.
22 species of amphibians live in British Columbia. Many of these species are peripheral, meaning their normal range is outside of BC. Frogs and toads (13 in total) and salamanders (9 species in total) make up the amphibian population.
A person is most likely to encounter one of British Columbia's amphibious residents in the southern regions. Lakes and slow-moving rivers host most of the species, but a few have adapted to the fast water found in the lower elevation, mountainous zones. Especially keep an eye out while visiting the temperate rain forests of BC!
