5 reptile names

Mammals are a clade and, therefore, cladists are happy to recognize the traditional taxon Mammalia; and birds are also a clade, universally ascribed to the formal taxon Aves. Mammalia and Aves are, in fact, subclades within the larger Amniota clade. But the traditional class Reptilia is not a clade. It is just a section of the Amniota clade: the section that remains after Mammalia and Aves have separated. It cannot be defined by synapomorphies, as is the correct way. Instead, it is defined by a combination of the features it has and the features it lacks: reptiles are the scale amniotes that lack hair or feathers. At best, cladists suggest, we could say that traditional reptiles are "non-avian, non-mammalian amniotes."

Despite early proposals to replace the paraphyletic Reptilia with a monophyletic Sauropsida, which includes birds, that term was never widely adopted or, when it was, was not consistently applied.[4] The term was never adopted.

Reptiles inhabiting El Salvador include snakes, lizards, crocodiles and turtles. El Salvador has a herpetofauna that includes 141 species of reptiles,[1] which are grouped into 3 orders and 26 families.

The emydids (Emydidae) are a family of carnivorous aquatic and semi-aquatic turtles. They live most of the time in ponds, reservoirs and rivers, going to land when they have to find suitable places to lay their eggs. This family is made up of 10 genera containing more than 50 species, four of which occur in El Salvador.

Alligatoridae (Alligatoridae) is a family of crocodilian sauropsids (reptiles) native to the Americas (with the exception of one species), commonly known as alligators, caimans and caimans. It includes the extant genera Alligator, Caiman, Melanosuchus and Paleosuchus, as well as numerous extinct genera. Of the 7 species that inhabit the Americas, one occurs in El Salvador.

The Anguids (Aguidae), popularly known as glass lizards, are a family of lacertid reptiles characterized by atrophy of the legs, although they are not directly related to snakes; it is, therefore, a remarkable case of evolutionary convergence. The distribution of Anguidae covers the Old and New World. It is absent only from Australia. Most species are terrestrial and live in leaf litter on the forest floor. The Anguid family is divided into three subfamilies, eight genera and contains 94 species, of which 5 occur in El Salvador.

This article analyzes in an interdisciplinary way the human-animal relationships of a group of artisanal fishermen in Argentina, whose trade leads them to incidentally capture endangered marine mammals and reptiles. We will address the interaction between this community and a group of biologists who seek the conservation of these species. Our hypothesis is that the human-animal relationships involved in the artisanal fishing practice of this community can be explained from a juxtaposition of the three paradigms defined by Pálsson (2001): the orientalist, the paternalist and the communalist. Although fishermen classify animal species according to their possibility of being exploited as a resource, they eventually negotiate with biologists for the protection of some of these species, reinventing themselves as strategic conservationists. The coexistence of the first two paradigms does not obscure the tacit communalism that permeates the fishermen's world of work and life.

Reptiles names

Reptiles' blood is not necessarily cold on its own. But they are ectothermic, meaning they get their body heat from external sources. Reptiles cannot regulate their body temperature internally as we humans do.

We discussed this at the beginning. They represent one of the most diverse groups among the terrestrial vertebrates that inhabit our planet. More than 8,000 different species of reptiles are known, spread over all continents except Antarctica, due to its icy climate.

The green anaconda (Eunectes murinus) is the heaviest snake, while the reticulated python (Malayopython reticulatus) is the longest snake. The green anaconda is a non-venomous snake but extremely dangerous because it possesses incredible strength. However, it does not usually attack a human being except in case of self-defense.

The fastest reptile is the bearded dragon, which can reach 40 km/hour. They are commonly seen in many parts of Australia where they inhabit eucalyptus forests, deserts, savannahs and bushland, among other habitats. The bearded dragon is an expert climber. The fastest snake is the black mamba.
