www.srilankareptile.com was launched to web on the 4th of June 2009 by the hands of the Honorable Environmental Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka.
It’s a broadly expanded version of the previous site, which was launched to web in 2005 including all reptiles found in Sri Lanka. The site presently include photographs, classification, food, breeding, distribution, behavior ect of orders, Serpentes, Crocodylidae, Testudines & Saurians based on the help of many experts in the field. All the fresh information & news about reptiles will be included with all the details as it happens.
Even though there are web sites including information of many animals over the world, there are only very few web sites which are based upon representing biodiversity of Sri Lanka and which are well maintained by experts of the relevant field or an university. So far, no other in Sri Lanka was able to create a large successful site as this and it is bound to become the first web site to represent the biodiversity of Sri Lanka. And also no country was so far able to cover a complete class of animals. Therefore, it becomes necessary to log in to this web site for any local/foreign explorers, zoologists, ecologists, who need information about these animals.
The team declares that they try their very best to fill the visitors with correct information and are gladly letting the visitors know that they also can have the chance to join in the team & work together with them.
