What is a Reptile?

Reptiles are an animal class of air breathing vertebrates that have scaley bodies and internal fertilization. They fall within an intermediate position of evolutionary development between the Amphibians and the Mammals and Birds. The living lineage of this animal class (Reptilia) includes the Turtles, Crocodiles, Snakes, Lizards, and Tuatra. The extinct reptiles include the Dinosaurs, Ichthyosaurs, and Pterosaurs.

Reptiles are Cold Blooded and have skin that is usually dry with few if any glands. They have four limbs protruding from the side, except for the Snakes. Though they are most abundant in the tropics, they can be found in all the warm and temperate regions. They span a variety of lengths from 34 millimeters (Gecko) to 9 meters (Anaconda Snake). The largest Turtle (Leatherback) weighs around 680 kilograms.
