Today is National Reptile Day

There are more than eight thousand different kinds of reptiles. They can be less than an inch long or they can weigh a ton. When reptiles hatch, they look like miniature adults. Reptiles have dry skin and scales, while amphibians have moist skin and do not have scales.

These facts were pulled from Learning to Care for Reptiles and Amphibians, written by Felicia Lowenstein Niven.
