The St Giles Islands are small islands off the northeast tip of Tobago. It is the northernmost point in Trinidad and Tobago. The main island is very steep-sided and hosts tropical dry forest and wind-swept littoral scrub. At least five species of reptiles have been recorded for the island. One is a snake - Boddaert's tropical racer (Mastigodryas boddaerti), and four are lizards - Green iguanas, Turnip-tailed geckos, Ocellated geckos (Gonatodes ocellatus), and an unidentified species of skink in the sub-family Mabuyinae. Besides, it is a popular dive site.
