Reptiles News

Reptiles are a diverse group of cold-blooded vertebrates that belong to the class Reptilia. This class includes snakes, lizards, turtles, crocodilians, and birds, although birds are now often classified separately in their own group. Reptiles are characterized by their dry, scaly skin, which helps prevent water loss, making them well-adapted to a variety of terrestrial environments. They lay hard-shelled eggs, although some species have developed live birth through evolutionary adaptation.
