ABSTRACT The Llanos de Challe National Park is located near Huasco in northern Chile, with a total area of 45,708 ha. The area experiences a cloudy coastal desert climate, and is representative of the Coastal Desert Ecological Subregion of northern Chile. From 1997-98 herpetological surveys were carried out in the area, yielding eight species belonging to six genera and five families.
