Reptiles of Costa Rica

Reptiles are intriguing creatures that most commonly inhabit the ground, however some of them are avid climbers and swimmers. While a lot of them are harmless to us, some do attack humans, although those attacks are most frequently caused due to us messing with them. Venomous snakes are among the most feared creatures, since they can lurk in the dark and bite without warning; their poison may be able to kill within hours or even minutes. Crocodiles also inspire fear, but due to the incredibly powerful bite that they possess. But even if dangerous to us, they do not stop being fascinating.
