Reptiles are ectothermic, which means that their internal body temperature is lower than the outside environment. This allows them to live in cold climates and in high altitude areas.
Reptiles are classified into two major groups, the amniotes and the Ichthyosaurs. Amniotes include all land animals, while Ichthyosaurs are extinct marine reptiles. There are about 190 reptile species in the world.
