Example text

A lizard’s diet varies, depending upon the species. Some have long tongues with sticky tips and specialize in insects. Many are carnivores that eat small mammals and birds. The water they need is usually obtained from the food they eat. Turtles, for example, feed on soft plant material, small animals, or both. Reproduction Most reptiles reproduce sexually, and their young come from eggs. The eggs are leathery and tough, and the offspring are seldom coddled. Some females remain with the eggs, but most reptiles bury the eggs in a hole and abandon them.

Other insects, like wood ants and pinebark beetles, eat dying or dead trees. Certain insects have very specific food requirements. Caterpillars of the Pandora moth feed on healthy pine trees, often killing them. White pine butterfly larvae feed only on the needles of the Douglas fir. Some insect larvae store fat in their bodies and do not have to look for food. Snails prefer to eat plants, while bees, butterflies, and moths gather pollen and nectar (sweet liquid) from flowers. Arachnids (spiders), which are carnivores, prey on insects.
