Amphibians

Amphibians are cold-blooded animals that usually split their time between using their lungs on land and breathing with gills underwater. 

Lizards

Lizards usually have a small head, a short neck and a long tail. There are more than 4,600 species of lizards including iguanas, chameleons, geckos and gila monsters, among others.

Alligators & Crocodiles

Alligators and Crocodiles are reptilian relatives but are distinguished by the width of the snout. Alligators have fatter, rounder snouts than crocodiles.

Snakes

Snakes have a long, flexible body that is covered with dry scales. Snakes flick their forked tongues to bring in odors to their sensory glands.
