In Reply to: Non-native british reptiles. What do YOU know? posted by Lee on June 12, 2002 at 07:17:28:
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.
I've got a web page on this subject at
: 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.
Griffiths and Beebee's New Naturalist book suggests that Aesculapian snakes have been seen recently (it's Colwyn Bay, not Conwy, by the way), but I think the dice snakes are long gone.
