Animalia Chordata Reptilia

Reptilia (Laurenti, 1768) or reptiles are generally cold-blooded chordates which have scales and breathe air.


Archosauria

  • Crocodilia (carnivorous long-jawed reptiles)
  • Dinosauromorpha (non-dinosaurian reptiles with dinosaur traits, such as proto-feathers and having their legs under their bodies)

Ichthyosauromorpha

  • Hupehsuchia (transitional ichthyosauromorphs which are typically aquatic or semi-aquatic and have limbs instead of fins)
  • Ichthyosauria (aquatic reptiles with shark-like bodies)

Pantestudines (creatures such as turtles, plesiosaurs and placodonts)

  • Plesiosauria (aquatic reptiles with broad flat bodies, short tails, and usually long necks)
  • Testudines (reptiles whose body is shielded by a special bony or cartilagenous shell)

Squamata (a taxon of reptiles that includes animals such as lizards, snakes, worm lizards and mosasaurs)

  • Agamidae (a diverse group of insectivorous lizards capable of limited color change)
  • Amphisbaenia (long-bodied, usually limbless squamates resembling snakes or earthworms)
  • Gekkota (lizards which commonly have cat-like eyes and sticky toe pads)
  • Iguania (commonly arboreal lizards with usually primitive tongues)
  • Scincomorpha (Skinks and their relatives)
  • Serpentes (limbless, earless, occasionally venomous reptiles with long flexible bodies)
  • Varanoidea (monitor lizards and their relatives)

Unsorted Reptiles

  • Avicephala (early reptiles characterized by their triangular, sometimes beaked, superficially bird-like heads)
  • Homosauria (humanoid reptiles that do not clearly fit into other orders)
  • Kharavasauria (reptiles that evolve to their mature forms via metamorphosis and do not fit real-world taxa)
  • Miscreptilia (reptiles that do not cleanly fit any other orders)
  • Pseudosauria (reptiles with non-reptilian mouths)
  • Rhynchocephalia (an order of lizard-like reptiles that includes tuataras and pleurosaurs)



Other Reptiles

  • Dinosauria (chordates with features intermediate between reptiles and birds)
  • Draconia (mythical reptile-like creatures, usually capable of flight making use of wings or magic)
  • Pterosauria (warm-blooded typically quadrupedal chordates which are covered in fur-like structures called pycnofibers and have membrane wings on their forelimbs)
  • Willosauria (tamaran-inspired chordates with three limbs, many of which also have three eyes and a grasping appendage on the end of their tail)
