What is Hepetology

 

What is Herpetology?‚Äč

Herpetology may sound like a funny word, but it is actually a serious science. Herpetology is the branch of zoology that studies reptiles and amphibians. The word "herpetology" comes from the word "herpeton" which means "a creeping or crawling animal" in Greek. People with an avid interest in herpetology often refer to themselves as "herpers". Luckily, modern science is far wiser than it was millennia ago and we now know that reptiles and amphibians are not sluggish, dimwitted or boring animals. In reality, herps are among the most successful, exciting, capable and interesting creatures ever to walk the earth, fly in the sky and swim in the seas.
