reptile definition and meaning

What is "reptile"?

Reptile refers to a class of animals that are characterized by their cold-bloodedness, scaly skin, and egg-laying reproduction. They are found all over the world in a wide range of habitats, from deserts to rainforests to oceans. Reptiles include familiar animals like snakes, lizards, turtles, and crocodiles. Many species of reptiles are predators, using their sharp teeth and powerful jaws to catch and eat prey. Others are herbivores, feeding on plants or fruits. Some reptiles are venomous, while others are harmless to humans. Reptiles play an important role in ecosystems as both predator and prey, and their conservation is crucial for maintaining a healthy and diverse environment.
