There are three species of crocodile, at least two chameleons (probably more when the forest is further explored), the large West African python (P. sebae) and a rare Boine snake (Calabaria).
Chameleons are common.
Long, are found on the wooded banks of the rivers; small lizards and chameleons are common, and there are several varieties of tortoise.
The Lacertilia, or lizards in the wider sense, fall easily into three natural groups: geckos (q.v.), chameleons (q.v.) and lizards.
The chameleons (q.v.) have many structural peculiarities.
Chameleons, lizards and iguanas abound, as do frogs and toads.
Reptiles - snakes, lizards and chameleons, crocodiles, turtles and an enormous variant of the edible Indian crab - are numerous; butterflies and insects, the latter very troublesome, have not yet been systematically collected.
