  6. 6. Birds<br />Birds are warm-blooded creatures that lay eggs. All birds have feathers and wings, and most birds are able to fly. Birds are can varied in their shapes, sizes, colors, and behavior patterns. <br />

  13. 13. Reptiles<br />Today there are 6,800 reptile species on earth; the major groups are alligators , crocodiles, turtles, lizards, and snakes. All reptiles are cold-blooded, which is why they warm themselves in the sun, and have bodies covered in dry scales. Some reptiles lay eggs; others give birth to live young. <br />

  15. 15. Mammals<br />Mammals live on land, at sea, in the air, and under the ground. All mammals, from bats to whales, share a number of important traits that make them different from other animals. Mammals are warm-blooded, they have fur or hair, and most mammals give birth to live young (rather than laying eggs).<br />
