When mating underwater, it has to press the eggs onto its mate's back. The eggs remain there until they hatch. One African gecko has such thin skin over its ear-openings that if you were to look at it with the openings lined up, you would see light coming through from the other side. Crocodile and alligator eggs only grow if they are kept warm, and the amount of heat affects whether the eggs develop into males or females. Below 30 C, the eggs all develop into females!

First paint them in different colours, then join the reels together with string to make the body.
