So you're a cold blooded reptile? Reptiles look scary, can be huge, are aggressive and can often be real nasty characters. More closely related to birds than any other animal family, reptiles boast a huge diversity from turtles to snakes to lizards and crocodiles, all of which vary massively. So a pretty interesting family to be a part of! One of the oldest family groups of the lot, these chaps are found everywhere except the polar regions.

Our feathered friends are the descendants of dinosaurs and, mostly, inhabit the clouds above us. Varying more than any other non-ocean based vertebrate, birds have been around in one form or another for millions of years. With a varied diet and habitat, you can find these winged wizards in nearly every habitat on earth.
Madagascar is home to some amazing and unique feathered friends, here's a link to Frontiers Madagascar projects!
The group that we humans belong to, mammals, dominate the ecosystems that they inhabit. The largest creature ever to have lived, the Blue Whale, is a mammal and so is the world's premier Apex predator, the Orca. With huge variety among the family, mammals are characterised by their warm blood and the fact that they give birth to live young, in most cases anyway. We're looking at you Mr Platypus.

Boasting far and away the biggest and most diverse animal family, the Invertebrates include crabs, insects, snails, octopus, squid, sea urchins and sea sponges. Invertebrates don't have a 'vertebral column' or spine and inhabit every single habitat on earth in some form. Managing to multiply and spread faster than any other, Invertebrates are, ironically, the backbone of the food chain.

The rulers of our oceans are the fish, with huge diversity and some of the biggest animals alive. The most famous of these is the Great White Shark, a top predator three times the size of a man with 300 teeth. With ancestors reaching back before the dinosaurs, fish boast a greater diversity than any other family of vertebrates and live in the world's largest habitat.

Amphibians are animals that mix it up between land and water habitats. They can be used as ecological indicators thanks to their extremely specific requirements for food and breeding. Amphibians are the links to the origins of our own species as they relate back to the first fish which crawled up onto land.
Costa Rica is a hot bed of amphibian activity so check out Frontier's Costa Rica Projects here!
