    Reptiles are a prominent part of the faunal diversity of New Zealand, but most species have suffered major range declines or extinctions in the past 2000 years. Nearly fifty percent of species (26 of 62) are now threatened or restricted to offshore islands and eight are subject to recovery programs (Towns and Daugherty 1994; Towns et al. 2001). Most declines can be attributed to loss or modification of habitat and predation by introduced mammals
