Climate Change, Reptiles, and You!
Animals are already reacting to climate change
Southerly Sea SNakes and Lizard Courtship
Join Dr. Greg Pauly, NHM's Curator of Herpetology, for a look at how climate change is already impacting the behavior of animals in the wild.
Yellow-bellied sea snakes are showing up more frequently further south than ever before. This shift in movement informs scientists about the species and our changing climate.
Climatic shifts are also affecting the unique mating behavior of alligator lizards. Researchers are working with community scientists to track this trend.
