Today’s word is Herpetology: herpetology is the branch of biology that studies amphibians and reptiles. A herpetologists can study all of these or just amphibians or just reptiles. There area around 6,500 species of amphibians on earth and 9,500 species of reptiles! That makes for a huge amount of animals that can be studied! If you were a herpetologist what animal would you study?
