Near Threatened (NT) species do not currently qualify for Critically Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN) or Vulnerable (VU), but are likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future, or are already close to qualifying.

Of the subpopulations of reptiles evaluated by the IUCN, two species subpopulations have been assessed as near threatened.
