Happy Reptile Awareness Day! Each year on October 21, people and organizations around the world highlight these cold-blooded species. Reptiles are covered in either scales or hard scutes, which is a bony external plate, like the shell of a turtle. They are a diverse group of animals, and here at Georgia Aquarium, we are home to seven different species. Click on the highlighted name of each species to visit our Animal Guide and learn more.
