Reptiles & Amphibians

Reptiles are tetrapod animals in the class Reptilia, comprising today's turtles, crocodilians, snakes, amphisbaenians, lizards, tuatara, and their extinct relatives

Herps
"Herps" is the vernacular word for reptiles or amphibians, so you dont have to say "Reptiles and Amphibians".      It comes from the Greek word "Herpetology", that means "things that crawl" and is concerned with poikilothermic, ectothermic tetrapods, or so they say.
