Reptiles

Reptiles are cold-blooded vertebrates that have scales layered over their skin. Common reptiles include lizards, snakes, alligators and crocodiles.

Alligators and Crocodiles are reptilian relatives but are distinguished by the width of the snout. Alligators have fatter, rounder snouts than crocodiles.

Snakes have a long, flexible body that is covered with dry scales. Snakes flick their forked tongues to bring in odors to their sensory glands.
