In all, 74 species, comprising of 28 species of amphibians belonging to 11 genera and 8 families and 46 species of reptiles, belonging to 27 genera and 9 families were recorded. Aspects deviating from literature have been discussed. A comparison of the results of the present study with that of the earlier works from the same region is also provided.
