The types of habitat that support the highest reptile and amphibian diversity include moist forests, wet meadows, temporary spring pools and marshes. In Toronto much of this habitat has been lost or made less suitable due to drainage and changes in water tables. Fortunately, the High Park wetlands and forests still support a number of native reptiles and amphibians, as well as the non-native Red-eared Slider turtle.
