Teal Lough is comparatively small but contains an exceptionally well-developed microtopography with the most extensive pool system found in Northern Ireland. The habitat is similar to Hebridean Blanket bogs with abundant lesser bladderwort Utricularia minor and oblong-leaved sundew Drosera intermedia. The rare hummock-forming bog-mosses Sphagnum fuscum and S. imbricatum also occur on the site.
