Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates covered in particular skin made up of scales, bony plates, or a combination of both.
They include crocodiles, snakes, lizards, turtles, and tortoises. All regularly shed the outer layer of their skin, and their metabolism depends on the temperature of their environment. Reptiles are among the longest-lived species on the planet. Snakes first appeared in the fossil record 315 million years ago.

Top 5 Reptile Fun Facts
- It’s estimated that there are more than 10,000 species of reptiles around the globe, and they can be found on every continent except Antarctica.
- Reptiles do not have sweat glands and, thus, are not slimy. Instead, their skin is usually calm and dry.
- Most species of snake lay eggs (oviparous). But many Vipers, Rattlesnakes, and Anacondas give birth to live young (viviparous).
- The hearts of snakes, lizards, turtles, and tortoises contain three chambers rather than the four-chambered hearts of humans.
- Many species of Turtle show temperature-depend sex determination. This means the ambient temperature outside the egg, during the embryo’s development, can determine a hatchling’s gender.
Have a look at some of the reptiles around the globe that we have covered and where to encounter them.
They are characterized by a unique bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs acting as shields. Colloquially, the word “turtle” is generally restricted to freshwater and sea-dwelling Testudines (turtles, tortoises, and terrapins).
Get to Know Sea Turtles
There are seven species of sea turtles -six of which are found swimming in every ocean except for the Arctic and Antarctica. The seventh sea turtle species, the flatback, lives only in the waters around Australia.
Sea turtles grow 2 – 7 feet long and weigh 70 – 1500 pounds. Given that there are seven species of sea turtles, the leatherback is the most giant sea turtle and can weigh up to 2,000 pounds. In addition, sea turtles are omnivores.
It should be known that sea turtles make long migrations between feeding and breeding zones.
For instance: the leatherback turtle travels around 3,500 miles each way between feeding and breeding. Regarding gestation, sea turtles will mate at sea, and then on the beaches; they lay their eggs. After digging a hole in the sand to deposit their eggs, they cover the hole back up and return to the waters.
Around 60 days later, the eggs hatch and tiny turtles make their way to the water – often at night time to avoid any potential threats to the young turtles.
Diet of Sea Turtles
Sea turtles, in general, are omnivores. However, their specific diet depends on which sub species they are. For instance: Leatherback turtles feed on jellyfish, while Loggerheads feed mainly on lobsters and fish.
Green turtles are vegetarian, so they eat seagrasses. Olive Ridley sea turtles mostly eat jellyfish, snails, and shrimp – though they may also feed on seaweed.
Endangerment of Sea Turtles
There are several factors which are leading to the endangerment of sea turtle. We must highlight these reasons as we become more aware of the dangers and ways we can help them.
- Entanglement in Fishing Gear
- Consumption of Turtle eggs and meat
- Global Warming
Over the last 200 years, human activities have tipped the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners. Sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation because they are slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin, and shells. In fishing gear, they also face habitat destruction and accidental capture—known as bycatch.
Climate change impacts turtle nesting sites; it alters sand temperatures, which then affects the sex of hatchlings. Nearly all sea turtle species are now classified as endangered, with three of the seven existing species being critically endangered.

Caiman (Animals of the Amazon)
The infamous Black Caiman is the largest predator in the Amazon basin, known for their black, scaly skin. They are usually found in the slow-moving rivers and lakes in the Amazon region, as well as in the floodplains of the Amazon Rainforest. Reptiles around the globe are closely related to the alligator.
There are plenty of black caimans in the Amazon region, and so they are considered at a “low risk” of extinction, with an estimated 25,000 to 50,000 black caimans in the wild.
Like all other members of the order Crocodylia (or Crocodilia), Caimans are amphibious carnivores. They live along the edges of rivers and other bodies of water, and they reproduce using hard-shelled eggs laid in nests built and guarded by the female.
Where can you go to spot a Black Caiman in the wild?
Rainforest cruises are one of the best operators to contact to ensure you see a black caiman up close and personal!

America and China. According to the Smithsonian Zoo, the American alligator lives in the southern United States, from North Carolina to Texas.
These Gators are in slow-moving rivers, ponds, lakes, and swamps. Chinese alligators live in eastern China and are confined to a small area in the Yangtze River basin near the Pacific Ocean. They are traditionally found in rivers, lakes, ponds, and swamps but are now mainly confined to ditches and ponds on agricultural land.

These “Water Boas,” as Anacondas are sometimes called, tend to be slow and unwieldy while on land and instead use their sleek bodies to swim swiftly through the water. Anacondas are primarily nocturnal snakes, though they can be seen active throughout the day.

In the ocean, Sea snakes are no more than 60 species of highly venomous marine snakes of the cobra family (Elapidae). Two independently evolved groups are the actual sea snakes related to Australian terrestrial elapids and the sea kraits associated with the Asian cobras.

Sea snakes are exploited for their skin, organs, and meat. Although some species are taken in great numbers, they are not protected by CITES (A Washingon convention).
Since 1934, the meat and skin of sea snakes have been used commercially in the Philippines, and local protection of sea snakes has become necessary to avoid overexploitation.
