Reptiles   

1     Reptiles are cold-blooded animals. They have dry skin with scales. Indeed, what makes reptiles different from other animals is their dry, tough skin. Snakes, turtles, and crocodiles are all examples of reptiles.
 
2     There are over 6,000 species of reptiles. They can be divided into five groups - turtles and tortoises, lizards, snakes, crocodilians, and tuataras. What is the difference between turtles and tortoises? Turtles live in water and have lighter, flatter shells. Tortoises live entirely on land and have strong, heavy shells.
 
3     Lizards have long, slender bodies with tails. The largest lizard on earth is the Komodo dragon. Komodo dragons can only be found on four small islands in Indonesia. They can be as long as 10 feet and as heavy as 365 pounds! Other lizards include geckos, iguanas, and chameleons.
