A tuatara is a animal who have lived for about 80 million years. They eat squirrels, insects, beetles, spiders, birds, eggs, frogs, and small reptiles and mammals. They are reptiles not lizards. They live in new zealand. New zealand is the only place you will find them in the wild. If you get to close to a Tuatara it might bite you and may not let go for a very long time. Tuataras are nocturnal. Their closest relatives are dinosaurs. They can live up to 100 years. Tuataras, unlike lizards, like cold weather.
