Amphibians and reptiles are very special animals. They come in many shapes and sizes and De Groote Heide is home to many different species of them. This page has more information.
One example of a reptile that lives on De Groote Heide is the smooth snake. While this snake is often confused with the adder, the adder is not an inhabitant of our area. Smooth snakes can be found on heathland, high moorland and push moraines. Their living environment is clearly limited to sandy soils.
Frogs are one of three groups of amphibians, salamanders and gymnophiona being the others two. Frogs are, however, by far the most common of the three. Using their famous vocal sacs frogs lure each other close, for example to mate.
