snakeWhat Are Reptiles?

Reptiles are cold-blooded, usually egg-laying vertebrates (animals with backbones). Their skin is covered with scales or plates. Unlike mammal young, which are dependent upon their mothers for some time after birth, most reptiles are independent from day one.

There are more than 6,500 reptile species; below is the list of reptiles on exhibit at the Zoo or shown through Animals & You.
