Oldest Reptiles on the Planet

Turtles are one of the oldest reptile groups on the planet, older than both snakes and crocodilians, with 356 known species, some of which are endangered. Only seven of the 356 species live in saltwater, known as marine turtles, while the rest live in freshwater lakes, rivers, ponds, swamps and other bodies of water on every continent around the world expect for Antarctica. These ‘cold-blooded’ animals can often times be found out of the water basking in the sun.
