Immerse yourself in my little adventure about a reptile exhibition in Spain, let's talk a little about these beautiful animals, many see reptiles as cold-blooded animals, dangerous and without any emotion but not everything is as it seems! To say that they are cold blooded does not classify them as dangerous animals without emotions, it simply does not have the ability to regulate their body temperature! let's walk in the world of reptiles to learn more about them!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Sumergete en mi pequeรฑa aventura sobre una exposicion de reptiles en Espaรฑa, hablemos un poco sobre estos hermosos animales, muchos ven los reptiles como animales de sangre fria, peligrosos y sin emocion alguna pero no todo es como parece! decir que son sangre fria no los cataloga como animales peligrosos sin emociones, es simplemente no tiene la capacidad para regular su temperatura corporal! caminemos en el mundo de los reptiles para conocer mas sobre ellos๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ’ฅ

THEY ARE COLD BLOODED ANIMALS๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ

As I mentioned before, a reptile is cold blooded because it does not have the ability to relax its body temperature by itself! it depends 100% on its environment, the most efficient way to raise its temperature is through the sun! lizards, snakes can take "sun baths" this physiological mechanism helps them to accelerate their metabolism and raise their temperature!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฏ
Como lo mencione anteriormente un reptil es de sangre fria debido a que no posee la capacidad de relugar su temperatura corporal por si solo! depende 100% de su entorno, la forma mas eficiente de subir su temperatura es mediante el sol! los lagartos, serpientes pueden tomar "baรฑos de sol" este mecanismo fisiologico les ayuda a acelerar su metabolismo y subir su temperatura!๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒž

On a rainy day with low light intensity, reptiles don't die! they just have a low metabolism, and they are basically cold! Many winter species, when the sun and temperatures are extreme like some turtles, their metabolism is almost reduced to 0, they only breathe at a very low rate! this to survive in times where there is not enough sun to perform activities such as hunting!
๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜En un dia lluvioso con poca intencidad luminica, los reptiles no mueren! simplemente su metabolismo es bajo, y basicamente estan frios! muchas especies inviernas, cuando el sol y las temperaturas son extremas como algunas tortugas, su metabolismo es casi reducido a 0, solo respiran con un ritmo muy bajo! esto para sobrevivir en epocas donde no hay suficiente sol para realizar actividades como cazar!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Lizard and python๐Ÿงค๐Ÿ˜ฎ

We are mammals, we have the ability to regulate our temperature without the need to sunbathe! But to generate heat, our body needs to produce energy, through calories, and the energy source comes from food! this clearly tells us that a reptile does not need to eat a lot because its metabolism is slow! this is a great evolutionary advantage let's imagine a python can live without eating for 6 months ...๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“

Nosotros somos mamiferos, tenemos la capacidad de regular nuestra temperatura sin necesidad de tomar baรฑos de sol! pero para generar calor nuestro cuerpo necesita producir energia, mediante calorias, y la fuente de energia proviene de alimento! esto nos dice claramente que un reptil no necesita comer mucho porque su metabolismo es lento! esto es una gran ventaja evolutiva imaginemos una piton puede vivir sin comer 6 meses...

Most reptiles lay eggs, their skin is characterized by being hard, and dry they have scales, there is a great variety of these animals distributed all over the world, many in tropical countries where environmental conditions allow it! the only place where we don't get reptiles is in Antarctica!๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ

There are approximately more than 8000 species of reptiles in the world, snakes and lizards are the main groups to be the most numerous! China is one of the countries with the greatest diversity of reptiles and amphibians, more than 210 species of amphibians and more than 320 species of reptiles, incredible right?๐Ÿ™€๐ŸŠ๐ŸฆŽ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ

There are two main characteristics that differentiate reptiles from amphibians, for example an amphibian such as a frog goes through a series of larval stages to reach its adult stage, such as a "tadpole" a reptile does not! the skin of a frog is moist and porous the opposite of a lizard or snake!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‰
Existen dos principales caracteristicas que diferencian a los reptiles de los amfibios, por ejemplo un anfibio como una rana pasa por una serie de etapas larvales para llegar a su estado adulto como por ejemplo "renacuajo" un reptil no! la piel de una rana es humeda y porosa lo contrario de un lagarto o serpiente!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The 4 main groups of reptiles in the world are the turtles, characterized by their protective shell, the large scaly ones this group includes lizards and serpents! then we have the respected crocodiles, they are the most similar to birds and dinosaurs already extinct! Millions of evolutionary years has made of the surviving large crocodiles!๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ˜ถ

The largest reptile in the world is the crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) can weigh up to 2 thousand kilos and measure more than 7 meters! the largest amphibian in the world Andrias davidianus with almost 2 meters long this newly identified Chinese salamander breaks a great record for the world of frogs!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

These animals break records for their great functionality and adaptability to the environment, for example the crocodile does not have sweat glands so they sweat through their mouth, it is a way to stay cool, did you know that one of the longest-lived animals is a turtle? they can live more than 100 years!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Estos animales rompen record por su gran funcionalidad y adaptabilidad al ambiente, por ejemplo el cocodrilo no tiene glandulas sudoripodas por lo que sudan por su boca, es una manera de mantenerse frescos, sabias que uno de los animales mas longevos es una tortugaยฟ? pueden vivir mas de 100aรฑos!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ

Chameleons are one of the most sought after by lovers of exotic animals, many believe that they change color to camouflage themselves and it is not true! the color change is a response to its change of mood, a chameleon changes color when it is sick, upset, in reproductive season๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚
Los camaleones son uno de los mas buscados por los amantes de los animales exoticos, muchos creen que ellos cambian de color para camuflajearse y no es cierto! el cambio de color es una respuesta de su cambio de humor, un camaleon cambia de color cuando esta enfermo, molesto, en epoca reproductiva๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿ˜ก

One of the animals with the most powerful poison in the world belongs to the order of snakes, the famous black mamba capable of killing a human in minutes! then we have extreme turtles like the species (Emydoidea blandingii) able to live and swim under ice! unthinkable because most are from tropical environments๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

The skull of a snake is very different from ours! the skull is made up of multiple small bones that connect to each other! giving the possibility to expand! that is why snakes can feed on prey much larger than themselves!๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
El craneo de una serpiente es muy diferente al nuestro! el craneo esta compuesto por multiples huesos pequeรฑos que se conectan uno con otro! dando la posibilidad de expandirse! es por ello que las serpientes pueden alimentarse con presas mucho mas grande que ellas!๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

Reptiles such as the bearded dragon, and turtles are intelligent and are able to recognize their name when it is called to eat! many reptiles are used as esteemed pets because they manage to create an esteem bond with us๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

but im afraid of snakes hahaha

Nice post and brautiful photos... I love Chameleons

:D

I read every details of your write up and saw every picture, but the amazing part of this is how were you able to pick snakes without any arm?

These photos are an exhibition, so do not manipulate them! But do you think that I no longer take bites? xD haha โ€‹โ€‹working with them, I took a lot of bites!

How then do you get rid of the venoms? Or are they poisonless

No, most do not have poison! I am to manipulate more pythons, first the poisonous ones have a sale restriction order in the vast majority of European countries! I personally do not handle poisonous! once I handled a coral it was the most extreme thing I did! Hugs

I had love to give you an upvote but am still new with little hive power, but I will follow you and read your articles

Wow, thanks for the reward, am really glad

Ok, I was wondering earlier how you were able to play with the reptiles

if one or another bite does not hurt hahahha! I invite you to follow our discord on discovery-it and publish quality content to receive great rewards

Ok

I meant harm

Wonderful post and amazing photos! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— During Corona lockdown I made a friend, Mr. Lizard ๐ŸฆŽ ๐Ÿ’› He loves to chill out with me on sunny days on my porch. This is him, I managed to take a few shots, he's little bit shy ๐Ÿ˜€

It seems to belong to the Teiidae family. I give you a tip. Some of those lizards have more colorful tails than other parts of their body! I don't see his tail here! but this is evolutionary mechanism to confuse predators! Did you know that their tails grow? So who would rather lose their tails or their heads? good question! they use bright colors so that the predators attack that point!
beautyyy photos

What a horror. But it's nice to be friends with you
