Lower Wilson Creek, Caldwell County, North Carolina: A Thermal Refugium for Reptiles?

Record #:
Fourteen species of reptiles were found in a year-long study of lower Wilson Creek, Caldwell County, North Carolina. Several of these species represented significant range extensions. A combination of exposed rock for basking, deep fissures, and warmer night and winter temperatures is probably responsible for the continued presence of these species well outside their known ranges.
