What are the adaptations in Reptiles to lead a complete terrestrial life?

Solution
Verified by Toppr

The adaptations in Reptiles to lead a complete terrestrial life are:-
1) They have developed a thick, scaly skin that helps them to conserve moisture inside their bodies which helps them survive on land (especially in hot and dry areas).
2) They have efficient excretory systems which help them to excrete a highly concentrated urine.
3) They lay eggs covered in a thick, leathery coating or hard calcium shells which can survive on land, some reptiles deliver live babies by carrying the eggs inside their bodies until birth (in snakes).
4) They have a fully developed lung which helps them to breathe as its scales prevent them from absorbing oxygen through their skin.
