At best, the cladists suggest, we could say that the traditional Reptilia are 'non-avian, non-mammalian amniotes'. [16] Despite the early proposals for replacing the paraphyletic Reptilia with a monophyletic Sauropsida, which includes birds, that term was never adopted widely or, when it was, was not applied consistently. [1] When Sauropsida was used, it often had the same content or even the same definition as Reptilia.

The optimum body temperature range varies with species, but is typically below that of warm-blooded animals; for many lizards, it falls in the 24°–35 °C (75°–95 °F) range, [67] while extreme heat-adapted species, like the American desert iguana Dipsosaurus dorsalis, can have optimal physiological temperatures in the mammalian range, between 35° and 40 °C (95° and 104 °F). [68] While the optimum temperature is often encountered when the animal is active, the low basal metabolism makes body temperature drop rapidly when the animal is inactive.

At the same time as the mammals were diversifying on land, they were also returning to the sea. Instead, there is a thin shell membrane through which water, gas (oxygen and carbon dioxide), and waste materials can pass. Fish live underwater and breathe through gills. The eggs of a reptile tend to have hard shells with a leathery feel. Now they have a large range and have taken to eating almost anything. The garter snake photo is from Gerry M.

Some living animals, like reptiles, look a lot like what we imagine dinosaurs to be, but that's just a coincidence. With a name like Gila monster, it’s no surprise that this species has one of the worst reputations in the reptile world. The sharks and their relatives and two extinct groups, the placoderms (which had bony plates covering their heads) and the acanthodians (the first known jawed vertebrates, with a skeleton of cartilage) made their appearance in the Silurian. You need to glue on eyes (wigglies are my favorite) and a red felt tongue.

He explained: It’s like some mad scientist has thrown these species together from all around the world and said, “Hey let’s put them all together and see what happens.” It could take decades before we actually know the long-term effects these species will have. Adults are about 3 to 5.5 inches long, including the tail. Reproduction involves a return to the water. The crocodile is an olive color with black spots on its tail, and is much larger. As amniotes, reptile eggs are surrounded by membranes for protection and transport, which adapt them to reproduction on dry land.
