What are the categories of reptiles?

Reptiles are tetrapod animals in the class Reptilia, comprising today's turtles, crocodilians, snakes, amphisbaenians, lizards, tuatara, and their extinct relatives. The study of these traditional reptile orders, historically combined with that of modern amphibians, is called herpetology.

These four reptile orders are as follows:
  • Crocodilia — crocodiles, gharials, caimans and alligators: 23 species.
  • Sphenodontia — tuataras from New Zealand: 2 species.
  • Squamata — lizards, snakes and amphisbaenids ("worm-lizards"): about 7,900 species.
  • Testudines — turtles and tortoises: approximately 300 species.
