Why are reptiles better adapted to life on land than amphibians?

Reptiles are cold-blooded animals (ectothermic). Their cellular metabolism generates some heat, but they do not generate enough heat to maintain a constant body temperature. Reptiles rely on the collection and loss of heat from the environment to regulate their internal temperature, for example, they move between the sun and shade.
