    This general introduction focuses on two major topics. First, the nature of reptiles and the poor (but improving) state of the study of reptiles and perceptions of their cognitive and social capabilities. Second, on what we mean by coexistence with wildlife, and how studying coexistence might improve our civility to other kinds of creatures in the future. I guest edited this special issue on coexistence with reptiles, commissioning articles on coexistence with crocodiles in East Timor (Sebastian Brackhane), Solomon Islands (Jan van der Ploeg), Philippines (Merlijn van Weerd, Myrna Cureg, Marites Balbas and Jan van der Ploeg) and urban Vadodara in Gujarat, India (Raju Vyas), and cobras in India (Janaki Lenin) and Komodo Dragons on Komodo (Maria Rosdalima Panggur, Ayu Wijayanti and Ardiantiono).
