Reptiles and amphibians
Fundy National Park is home to four species of snakes. While, spring and early summer nights vibrate with the mating calls of frogs and toads - Salamanders, the other amphibians in the park, are mute.
- Frogs and toads
Although they are famous for their size and strength, Atlantic salmon start out very small - slightly larger than the head of a pin. Reaching the ocean opens up new food sources for them to feed on. They can grow very quickly, with some reaching over 100 times their weight within a year!
