If you’ve been racking your brain trying to think of an awesome idea for the next party that you’ll be hosting then we have great news for you. Reptile Shows of New England will travel to New York in order to provide you with a show that people will not soon forget. So, why is a reptile show a great idea for your next party? The answer is simple. People are fascinated with reptiles, but what drives this fascination? First and foremost, reptiles look like smaller versions of dinosaurs. Humans have been awestruck by dinosaurs since the first dinosaur fossil was discovered back in 1677 by Robert Plot.
By the way, the word dinosaur actually means “terrible lizard.” Sir Richard Owen coined the name in 1841 in order to describe the fossils of these massive and extinct reptiles. He actually came up with the name dinosaur by combining the Greek words “deinos”, which means terrible, and “sauros”, which means lizard. There are other reasons why people are fascinated with reptiles besides the fact that they are directly related to dinosaurs.
Here are some more interesting facts about reptiles: Reptiles are cold-blooded animals. That means they do not have the ability to regulate their own body temperatures. That’s why they are typically found in warm climates and like to sit in the sun. When the weather turns cold these incredible animals either seek warm places in which to burrow or hibernate. Otherwise, they could easily freeze to death. Humans are actually warm-blooded animals. That means we have the ability to regulate our body temperatures. This is the type of stuff that you will learn when you have Reptile Show of New England travel to New York for your next party.
Here’s another interesting reptile fact. Reptiles typically have scaly, dry skin. Snakes, lizards, turtles, members of the crocodilian family are examples of reptiles. Although these animals are all considered to be reptiles, member of the crocodilian family are more closely related to birds.
