By Rhett Butler   |  Last updated 2016-Jan-23




There are more than 450 species of lizards, snakes, turtles, tortoises, and caiman in the Amazon Basin.

Reptiles are an important food source for people in the Amazon.

Many reptiles species are illegally collected an exported for the international pet trade. Live animals are the fourth largest commodity in the smuggling industry after drugs, diamonds, and weapons.
