Reptiles have various ways to defend themselves. Some snakes mimic venomous snakes , some can inflate their bodies to look bigger, flatten their heads to look like a venomous snake. Turtles and lizards can bite. Most reptiles use their speed or camoflage to minimize confrontations with potential predators.
