Amphibians and Reptiles of the UK Overseas Territories

The UK Overseas Territories are 14 groups of islands scattered across all seven seas. The Territories are home to a dazzling array of amphibians and reptiles, including dozens of species that occur nowhere else on Earth. This diversity includes many species of iguanas, including the spectacular blue iguana of the Cayman Islands, tortoises, sea turtles, several boas (including a rainbow boa with iridescent scales) chameleons and one of the world’s largest frogs. This mini-documentary explores this astounding diversity of amphibian and reptile species.

Please note: although complementary to the BBC FOUR series, the 40 short mini-documentaries are not commissioned or editorially overseen by BBC.
