Science: Reptiles

Science: Reptiles

Reptiles are animals that live on land and have dry skin that is covered with scales. Because they live mostly on land, they need to use lungs to breathe the oxygen from the air. Some reptiles such as an alligator or a crocodile, spend time in the water, but they still need to come to the surface to breathe. Many reptiles hatch from eggs that are laid on land. These eggs have a very tough shell that feels like leather. There are a few reptiles that give birth to live babies. No matter how they are born, baby reptiles are able to meet their needs as soon as they’re born. This means that they don’t need their parents to show them how to survive Reptiles are found almost everywhere on earth, except for very cold places.

There are three main groups of reptiles. One group contains lizards and snakes. Their bodies have scales that overlap. Lizards have four legs and long tails and live in very warm places. Snakes don’t have legs, but they can move by pushing their bodies against the ground. Alligators and crocodiles are another group of reptiles. They live in water a lot of the time, but have to come out to lay in the sun so they can stay warm. The last group of reptiles includes tortoises and turtles. They are the only reptiles that have shells. Tortoises live on land, while turtles live in the water.
