 From May to June 2008, surveys of amphibians and reptiles were conducted in Weizhou Island Bird Nature Reserve. 7 species of amphibians and 16 species of reptiles were recorded, which belong to 11 families and 3 orders. Compared with the 18 year old survey of amphibians and reptiles on the island, an alteration of the distribution and abundance of amphibians and reptiles was due to changes in the natural environment and habitats. The major frost, which occurred in 2008, lead to a great loss of amphibians and reptiles on Weizhou Island. There were no endemic species on this island; the species of amphibians and reptiles on the island was similar to those found on the neighboring mainland.
