well i noticed that a distinction between reptiles and humans/monkeys and what not is that reptiles are cold blooded.. so i tried to make a theory based on cold bloodedness.. and had trouble.. but since they're cold blooded i'd think that the brain would have to devote more of its small self to temperature monitoring.

other than cold bloodedness i would have to disagree about reptiles being purely instinctal, like cobras know that by making their head look bigger it'll scare things away and some of the venomous snakes divide strikes and attacks. like a copperhead might strike at you but try to hold back its venom and then flee whereas i think w/ only instinct the copperhead would try to kill you seeing that you're a threat and end up dying in battle.. dunno if i've made much sense
