The edge of the plateau, about 20 miles north of Wickenburg, acts as an effective barrier to many reptilian and amphibian taxa, with speciation or subspeciation having lead to different populations in the higher.

This is an increase of four species from the list compiled by Rorabaugh and Lemos-Espinal (), and This is a great book for amateur herpetologists and even a good update for more experienced herpetologists in California. The material overlaps pretty extensively with the Western guide, with some key differences.

In the first bilingual work on the reptiles and amphibians of the US–Mexico border, top herpetologists come together to describe the herpetofauna of the states of this region, which includes more than species of toads, frogs, salamanders, turtles, sea turtles, alligators, lizards, snakes, and sea snakes that are found along the almost 2,mile border between the two countries.

The purpose of this research was to compile a presence list of reptiles and amphibians that occur in Palo Pinto County, Texas, and to investigate the ecological distributions and zoogeographic affinities of these herpetiles.

The study area was chosen primarily because of its location in North Central Texas and its rugged topography, which sets it apart from the surrounding : Stuart T.
