Checklists of Exmoor's Wildlife
In 1996 ENHS produced The Flora and Fauna of Exmoor National Park listing 8243 species which had been recorded. (Now out of print). Since then there have been a number of additions published annually in Exmoor Naturalist magazine. The following lists show what we have recorded so far and it is hoped there will be future updates.


Reptiles
Viviparous Lizard Lacerta vivipara Widely distributed on heaths and moors.
Slow-worm Anguis fragilis Common on heaths, in hedgebanks, allotments and gardens.
Grass Snake Natrix natrix Usually near water, swims well. Probably decreased in numbers.
Adder Vipera berus On damp or dry moorland also hedgerows and walls. Grey, brown, greenish, cinnamon and black coloration forms have all been recorded on Exmoor.
