FOR FANS OF STEVE IRWIN
Reptiles have been around for hundreds of millions of years, but to this very day they do not have the best reputation. Wrongfully so, believes Sterrin Smalbrugge. Reptiles are indispensable to nature. Moreover, they are incredibly fascinating. Did you know for example that the king cobra is the only snake in the world that makes a nest for her children? That the gecko is a true Spider-Man because of his cool legs? And that the venom of the Gila monster (a big lizard) is used in medicine to treat diabetes type 2?
