Herpetology is the part of zoology worried about the investigation of creatures of land and water (counting frogs, amphibians, lizards, newts, and caecilians (gymnophiona)) and reptiles (counting snakes, reptiles, amphisbaenids, turtles, reptiles, turtles, crocodilians, and the tuataras).[1] Birds, which are cladistically included inside Reptilia, are generally rejected here; the logical investigation of birds is the subject of ornithology.

Along these lines, the meaning of herpetology can be all the more accurately expressed as the investigation of ectothermic (unfeeling) tetrapods. Under this definition "herps" (or now and then "herptiles" or "herpetofauna") bar fish, yet it isn't exceptional for herpetological and ichthyological logical social orders to "group up", distributing joint diaries and holding gatherings to cultivate the trading of thoughts between the fields, as the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists does. Numerous herpetological social orders have been shaped to advance interest in reptiles and creatures of land and water, both hostage and wild.

Herpetology offers advantages to mankind in the investigation of the job of creatures of land and water and reptiles in worldwide biology, particularly in light of the fact that creatures of land and water are regularly delicate to ecological changes, offering a noticeable admonition to people that huge changes are occurring. A few poisons and toxins delivered by reptiles and creatures of land and water are valuable in human medication. Presently, some snake toxin has been utilized to make enemies of coagulants that work to treat strokes and cardiovascular failures.

Creatures of land and water are little vertebrates that need water, or a wet climate, to endure. The species in this gathering incorporate frogs, amphibians, lizards, and newts. All can inhale and retain water through their slight skin. Creatures of land and water additionally have uncommon skin organs that produce valuable proteins.

Reptiles are tetrapod creatures in the class or clade Reptilia. As a class in Linnean scientific classification, Reptilia alludes to a paraphyletic gathering containing all amniotes with the exception of synapsids and Aves. The class Reptilia contains turtles, crocodilians, snakes, amphisbaenians, reptiles, tuatara, and their terminated family members.
