Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Reptiles are cold-blooded animals that are characterized for having scales or bony plates and also for laying eggs. Animals such as crocodiles, lizards, turtles, chameleons, and snakes are all examples of reptiles. The majority of all reptiles have four legs and a backbone and because of this are known as tetrapod vertebrates. Snakes are an exception. They have a backbone, but they do not have any legs. Because most reptiles are cold-blooded, they cannot control their body temperatures, so they have to bask or lie in sunlight to warm up. Reptiles are found on every continent on the planet except for Antarctica. Because reptiles don't need energy to keep their bodies warm themselves, they require less food. Some snakes only eat once or twice a year. Reptiles are very ancient animals and are thought to have been on this planet for over 300 million years. The biggest reptile on the planet is the saltwater crocodile which can weigh up to 900 kilograms. The smallest is the nano chameleon found in Madagascar and this can fit on a human fingertip. The fastest reptile is the spiny tailed iguana which can run up to 20 miles per hour.
