Non-native british reptiles. What do YOU know?

Next year I will be compiling a photographic guide to the reptiles of the British Isles for an MSc project in Biological photography. As well as covering the native species I would also like to include the more frequently encountered introduced animals. So far red-eared sliders and european wall lizards seem suitable nominees. Does anyone know of any other non-native reptiles which may be encountered in the U.K? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Lee.

N.B: There are records of Aesculapian snakes Nr Conwy, Wales (escaped 1980's from Welsh mountain zoo) and of tesselated water snakes (Natrix tesselata)from Spalding upon Holme moor, Yorkshire. Does anyone know if these populations still exist. Thanks again, Lee.
