Herpetological diversity in forests of Portobelo National Park, Colón Biological Corridor, Panama
Panama has 229 species of amphibians and 280 species of reptiles, of which 72 (31.4%) are threatened according to
national legislation and 20 are endemic. The study area is of high ecological value and functions as a natural biological
corridor; however, it has very few sites that have been studied. For two years we sampled the area, registering 55 species
of amphibians and 58 reptiles, including species with local conservation categories, new records of distribution, and a
new species for science that will be described in a later work.
