Herpitles are a general grouping of all Reptiles and Amphibians. Called “Herps” for short. The study of reptiles and amphibians is called Herpetology.

Also the hobby of actively going out to look for / photograph / record them is called “herping”, and people who do so are called “herpers”.

Had to look it up after I saw it on your profile! Cool that you have different interests.

Thought so, wanted to confirm. Seeing a lot of tufted titmouses/mice? in yard lately. They have funny antics.

By English rules, Killdeers would be correct. However, just like “titmice,” we have established an incorrect construction as the accepted plural (because the plural of “deer” is “deer). That is, the plural of “titmouse” should be “titmouses.”
