2: Reptiles live in every biome except for the ones that are cold. Reptiles are,what scientists call, ectothermic. Ectothermic is when you have to regulate your temperature according to the temperature of the weather. They get their warmth through their skin.
3: Like birds, reptiles lay eggs. Their eggs fertilize internally. The eggs are covered with a hard shell and membrane. The shell and membrane protect the developing embryo and it helps it from drying out. Small holes or pores let oxygen in and carbon dioxide out. Reptile eggs conserve water so they can be laid on dry land.The egg of a reptile has three membranes. The first membrane holds the liquid that surrounds the embryo, this liquid helps protect the embryo from getting crushed. It also keeps it moist. The second membrane holds the yolk which provides food for the embryo which it cells need to grow. The third membrane holds the embryo' s waste. | Reproduction Method

Larger lizards eat larger prey such as the frog or birds that are mostly found in the ground. Smaller lizards eat small insects. The chameleon captures insects by using it's sticky tongue adapted catching insects. It shoots out it's long tongue and catches the insects. Snakes, however, are ALL carnivores which means they are predators. Some snakes eat large prey. Snake's mouth can spread wide apart. The skull of a snake can even move to allow much bigger prey enter it's mouth. Some snakes eat small prey though. Snakes can catch their prey in many ways. Some snakes use their long curved teeth to hook on to slippery prey like slugs. Some snakes have hollow teeth with venom glands called fangs. They put their fangs into the prey, venom flows down to the animal, and kills it instantly. Then the snake eats the poisoned animal
