What I'm saying is that given that Tatalia is swamp and inhabited by so many reptilian creatures (lizardmen, serpant flies, hydra, basilisks, gorgon) one would generally assume that the place was pretty warm, tropical even. But given that the place is actually so close to Vori it must be fairly cold.
There are actually plenty of lizards and snakes that can live in fairly cold environments quite happily. I happen to possess a nocturnal gecko whose species comes from the southern end of New Caledonia.
Gargoyle Geckos effectively live in the coldest part of New Zealand and not only that, they come out at night when it is even colder, it's not getting cold these creatures are worried about, it's rather getting hot.
So there's no basic problem with the idea that Tatalia is a cold temperate enviroment that has reptilian creatures living there.
