There is no complete list as such because it's not entirely known exactly what's out there, but here's a good start for you....

Nice bit of info there Al, i remember years ago a garden centre not far from me having ponds full of American bullfrog tadpoles never seen anything like it they were bloody huge. Dont think theyre still there though as now its another housing estate
Got a feeling the tadpoles used to come in with bags of goldfish as well from abroad.
As for terrapins the lakes and canals around here are full of them from the ninja turtle craze days

Thank you very much :)
I should of asked for a more complete list rather than a complete list,most of em only seem to list four or five species in each category when I know there are a lot more.

No worries, and yes, there's alot of species out there - some breeding, some not!

It is ilegal to let a grey squirrel free if you have it trapped.By law you have to kill it coz it is such a pest and is killing off the native red squirrel! Dunno if its relevent for you but just thought ide share it

Hmm.... I remember someone saying there's corn snakes out breeding somewhere in the South of England, whether that's true or not...

They are more widely spread than many realise - I collected a load of tadpoles from a garden in High Wycombe, all the neighbours had them too!
