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.

Rhabdophis subminiatus helleri. This is almost unique amongst snakes and animals as it is both venomous (with a deadly bite) and poisonous (as it can secrete the poison from the toads it eats from a groove in its neck). Nonetheless, this pretty snake is essentially harmless, as it very rarely bites and is not at all aggressive.
