The Peculiar World of Marine Reptiles

Natural World Facts
The World of Marine Reptiles. This video is sponsored by Endel. The first 100 people to download Endel at https://app.adjust.com/b8wxub6?campaign=naturalworldfacts_november&adgroup=youtube will get a free week of audio experiences! Reptiles are a diverse and successful group. With over 8,000 species found worldwide, only around 100 species can be considered marine reptiles, including sea turtles, marine iguanas, sea snakes and crocodiles. They retain the defining characteristics of reptiles, including tough scaly skin that covers their bodies. But in addition, marine reptiles have developed a number of specialised anatomical and physiological adaptations to survive in the oceans. We'll take a closer look at these in this film. 00:00 - Introduction 02:01 - Galapagos Marine Iguanas - Anatomical Adaptations 02:42 - Galapagos Marine Iguanas - Temperature Regulation 03:34 - How Marine Reptiles Balance Water and Salt 04:36 - Sea Snakes and Kraits - An Overview 05:47 - Sea Snakes and Kraits - Feeding Behaviours 06:20 - Sea Snakes and Kraits - Batesian Mimicry 06:52 - Sea Snakes and Kraits - Diving Adaptations 07:08 - Sea Turtles - Diving Adaptations 07:36 - Sea Turtles - Seasonal Migrations and Breeding 09:11 - Saltwater Crocodiles - Nesting Behaviours 10:03 - Conclusion CHECK OUT OUR DEEP SEA WEBSITE: https://naturalworldfacts.com/deep-sea-hub/ I do not own any of the footage.
