Reptile Awareness Day and In the News

Reptile Awareness Day - Today is Reptile Awareness Day!

Reptile Awareness Day, celebrated annually on this day, promotes learning about different types of reptiles, their natural habitats, and the ecological threats they face.

Reptiles are a class of vertebrates that are scaly and cold-blooded and that, with a few exception, lay eggs.

They include turtles, terrapins, and tortoises; lizards, snakes, and legless worm lizards; the tuatara of New Zealand; and crocodiles, alligators, gavials, and caimans. There are 6,500-10,000 species of reptiles, which live on every continent except Antarctica.
