Abstract

Within the last decade, there has been growing attention toward the herpetofauna of Tobago. The checklist for Tobago is continually expanding as numerous cryptic species are documented, as reviewed by Murphy and Downie (2012), most notably lizards, snakes and frogs (for example new Leptophis sp. (Murphy et al. 2013)). Here, we reviewed the Emydidae (pond and river turtles) and the accounts of Testudinidae families (Tortoises).
