In this study we present a list of amphibians and reptiles from the Reserva Biológica do Tapirapé (REBIOTA), an area in the Amazonian rainforest in Pará State, Brazil. We sampled the area for 21 days, in both dry and rainy seasons, using pitfall traps and active searching methods. Our efforts resulted in the discovery of 35 species of amphibians and 27 species of reptiles. This study provides the first list of amphibians and adds eigh new species of reptiles for the Carajás region.
