Reptiles are some of the oldest creatures living on our planet. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Reptiles can be found in every part of the world except Antarctica. They are vertebrates and include alligators, crocodiles, snakes, lizards, tortoises and turtles. Their habitats range from the open sea to deserts and everywhere in-between. Size can be a 2 cm. or less gecko to a giant crocodile more than 6 feet long. Most species lay eggs but some do give birth to live young. They can make interesting pets for people who are knowledgeable regarding their choice and committed to their care and well-being.
