澳洲的爬行動物受入侵物種及氣候變化所威脅。外來野貓每年捕殺超過6億隻爬行動物,令11個物種面臨絕種。另外也有其他外來物種,像有毒的美洲巨蟾蜍,進入了食物鏈影響到其他原生動物。氣候暖化及棲息地被破壞亦令部分物種消失。

invasive species and climate change are threatening Australia’s reptiles. invasive feral cats are killing over 600 million of reptiles yearly, putting 11 of the reptiles close to extinction. some other invasive species like the toxic cane toad, entered the food chain and bring threats to the native species. some species are also disappearing because of raising temperature and habitat lost.
