In this course collection, interpreters, guides, docents, and wildlife care specialists can explore the fascinating life of reptiles in this collection of five modules. The individual modules allow for a more focused approach to the material, as each takes a narrow scope. Each module includes self-assessment opportunities and its own mastery test. Reptiles 1 explores the physical characteristics of the reptiles: snakes, lizards, turtles and tortoises, crocodilians, and tuataras. Reptiles 2 covers reptile distribution and habitats. In Reptiles 3, learners investigate what—and how—reptiles eat, as well as which animals prey on various reptiles, and how reptiles avoid being eaten. This module also covers thermoregulation, locomotion, behavior, and communication. Reptiles 4 explores the fascinating world of reptile reproduction. The final course in the series, Reptiles 5 investigates the conservation status of reptiles, threats to reptiles, and how conservationists are helping. The module concludes with a look at some examples of how we can all participate in reptile conservation.
