Inheritance also lets you build generalization relationships
between classes. For example, you could create a class called
'Animal' that contains information that all animals have in
general. Then, you could create *Reptile* and *Mammal* classes
that both inherit from *Animal*. Taking it even further, you
could create two additional classes *Lizard* and *Snake* that both
inherit from *Reptile*, as shown in [12-3].

...two additional classes Lizard and Snake that both inherit from Reptile, as shown in Figure 12-3. There are
classes *Frog* and Snake inheriting from Reptile in fig 12-3.
