Most reptiles are ecto-therms, meaning their body temperature is directly related to the outside environment. This means, they emerge on sunny, warm days to sun themselves; and retreat to dark, quiet places to hibernate on cold days.
Remember, not all wild animals need our help. There is no such thing as a baby reptile. The mother's only role is to lay eggs. The young are on their own from the time they hatch.
