Found on every continent except Antarctica, reptiles are almost ubiquitous! Numbering more than 8,200 known species, reptiles are cold-blooded and are characterized primarily by their scaly skins. Some reptiles give birth to live young, but most lay eggs. Zoo Atlanta houses around 100 native and exotic snake, turtle and lizard species.
