Reptiles / Birds

Reptiles are often confused with dinosaurs. Jurassic creatures such as Ichthyosaurus, Mosasaurs, and Pliosaurs are just as iconic as dinosaurs but they are actually all reptiles, as unlike dinosaurs they are cold-blooded. The earliest known reptiles originated around 310mya during the Carboniferous period after they evolved from advanced reptile-like amphibians and became increasingly adapted to life on dry land.
