Meet the Squamates

Use this slideshow to gather information. Once you’ve learned about how these animals hunt, eat, and move, transform what you’ve learned into your own squamate exhibit. Print a Squamate chart (PDF) and take notes about each squamate:

  • How does it move and hunt prey?
  • What does it eat?
  • How does it defends itself?
  • Other interesting features
