Diving with Turtles & Snakes

Koh Lanta Marine Life | Reptilia
Ray-finned FishesOctopus, Cuttlefish & Squid

Reptiles, including turtles and snakes, are cold-blooded, air-breathing vertebrates (have lungs) with a bony skeleton and a body usually covered with scales or horny plates. We are lucky enough to be able to spot several types of reptile when diving Koh Lanta.

Reptiles typically have 4 legs, except snakes, which are descended from four-limbed ancestors. In the case of turtles, of course the legs have evolved to become flippers.

Reptile reproduction lacks a larval stage, which means that are usually egg-laying animals.

Aquatic reptiles found in the southern Andaman include sea turtles and coral reef snakes (venomous snakes) of which only a few distinct members are normally encountered at the dive sites around Koh Lanta.
