This is your starting point if you are interested in any aspect of Australian Herpetology.
Herpetology is the branch of zoology concerned with the study of reptiles (including snakes, lizards, amphisbaenids, turtles, tortoises, crocodilians, and the tuatara) and amphibians (including frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, and caecilians).
The terms "herpetofauna" "herps" "herptiles" are sometimes used to describe these animals (i.e. reptiles& amphibians)
The word "herpetology" is from Greek: herpeton, "creeping animal". People with an avid interest in herpetology and who keep different reptiles or amphibians often refer to themselves as "herpers" with the term"field herpers" or "field herps" applying to those who search for reptiles in the wild.
