Fire Island has a sizable population of Hognose snakes, and toads for the matter. I see Diamondbacks a lot in Stony Brook Harbor when I'm out paddling - the largest colony of them on the East Coast is in the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, near Far Rockaway. You can also find Milk snakes there, which I've also come across in Suffolk.

In Port Washington, there's a colony of Italian Wall Lizards at the science center, the name escapes me. And some estate on the south shore has just a tremendous quantity of well-documented box turtles. I have an article on them somewhere.

It's really a shame so much of LI is being paved and bulldozed, though I'm always thrilled when I have to slam on the brakes when driving through Old Westbury to avoid hitting a red fox.
