Get Closer to See What’s Old… Really, Really, Old

The first animals with backbones to crawl on land, reptiles aren't just the largest animals to ever roam the planet - they also ruled the earth during the Age of the Dinosaurs. Reptiles have existed for more than 300 million years, and they're a living representation of history itself.

What makes reptiles different from other animals?

  • They're suited to live in some of the driest habitats on earth
  • They have tough, scaly skin and their eggs have waterproof shells
  • They're cold-blooded and need to warm up in the sunshine before they can move quickly
