Presentation Transcript


Reptilia – “creepy crawly”

  • Examples: snakes, lizards, crocodiles, turtles


Traits

  • Dry, scaly skin


Traits

  • ectotherms


Traits

  • Well developed lungs


Traits

  • 3 chambered heart with partially divided ventricle


Traits

  • Muscular bony legs to the sides, if any at all


Traits

  • Toes with claws


Traits

  • Internal fertilization


Traits

  • Lay amniotic eggs on land

Amphibian egg

Reptile egg


Reptilian heart

  • Good pressure, partially divided ventricle keeps blood from mixing as much


Reptilian adaptations for land life

  • To avoid dehydration – waterproof skin, colon absorbs water from feces, low respiration rate loses less water

  • Reproduction – internal fertilization, amniotic egg


Copulation

  • Process of internal fertilization, male inserts sperm into the female system


Amniotic egg

  • Overcame the last obstacle to life on land


Amnion

  • provides a water environment for the developing embryo

Albumen

  • Provides protein for building materials (white)

Yolk sac

  • Provides food energy

Shell and Chorion

  • Protects and waterproofs

Allantois

  • Collects wastes, acts as a respiratory surface

Orders of Reptiles

Squamata

Testudinata

Crocodilia

Rhynchocephalia


Squamata

  • Largest order of reptiles

  • E.g. – snakes and lizards


Testudinata

  • Turtles and tortoises

How do you tell them apart?


Turtles

  • live mostly in water, flatter shell, fast


Tortoises

  • live on land, rounded shell, slow


Turtle or Tortoise?


Turtle or Tortoise?


Crocodilia

  • Crocodilesand alligators


  • Crocodiles

  • narrow head

  • pointed snout

  • teeth visible on top

  • and bottom

Alligators

  • broad head

  • rounded snout

  • teeth not as visible on bottom


Alligator or Crocodile?

Rhynchocephalia

  • Tuatara

3 rows of teeth (2 on top and 1 on bottom) and a light sensitive gland on its forehead that looks like a third eye
