Watch in a different language
Reptiles are vertebrate animals which are characterized by their special way of moving, many move by dragging their tummies, or abdomen, on or close to the ground. Their name in Latin means just that: reptar means to crawl or slither.
Reptiles are cold blooded animals which breath through their lungs. They are oviparous, meaning that they lay eggs and when they develop and then hatch, the babies are identical to their parents…but just smaller.
Reptiles are covered with strong and resistant scales and some, such as turtles, have a shell. The majority are carnivorous, like the crocodile, so it means they must hunt in order to eat and a few are herbivores, such as an iguana.
During this educational video dedicated to children in both preschool and primary, we will learn these many fascinating animal facts.
