Dominating the earth for a seemingly interminable 312 million years, reptiles are truly prehistoric beasts. They are cold blooded, which means they rely on external sources to warm their bodies. Of the ten thousand or so extant species, we keep an ever-growing amount. At present, 8 of Europe’s most iconic are housed by us; from giants such as the eyed lizard to the ageless European pond turtle.
