These Reptiles Spend Much of Their Time Foraging and Digging Burrows

These slow-moving reptiles spend much of their time foraging and digging burrows in the dirt to keep themselves warm. They live a lazy lifestyle, often spending half of their day or more resting. They are quite long-lived - reaching 50+ years is not uncommon.
