Reptiles

Crocodiles, Lizards, Snakes...

Reptiles are among the planet's oldest creatures—crocodilians, for instance, have been terrorizing smaller animals for approximately 200 millions years. But the majority of reptiles are unable to internally regulate their body temperature and so live in temperate and tropical climates. Some bear live young, but typically, reptiles lay eggs which develop miniature adults.
