Do reptiles slow down when it gets cold outside?

    Yes they do.  Since reptiles are ectotherms, environment temperature plays a role in the activity level of reptiles: they are active when it’s warm outside and they slow down when it’s cold.  The chemical reactions needed to life are more effective at higher temperatures, so a cold reptile won’t be able to produce very much energy for movement, as opposed to a warm reptile.
