Species identification

Please click here for information on identifying the amphibians and reptiles of Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

If you're not sure what you've seen, you can also download our project leaflet which includes a quick guide to the amphibians and reptiles that can be found locally.

Note that all reptiles are rare in these areas, so if you see a reptile we’ll be particularly keen to hear from you!
