Herpetology

The Herpetological Medicine specialty of the European College of Zoological Medicine (ECZM) was founded in 2009. This specialty encompasses the veterinary treatment, healthcare and preventative medicine of all reptilian and amphibian species (captive or wild) including Crocodilia (crocodiles, gavials, caimans, and alligators), Sphenodontia (tuataras), Squamata (lizards, snakes, and worm lizards), Testudines (turtles, terrapins and tortoises), Anura (frogs and toads), Caudata or Urodela (salamanders, newts), and Gymnophiona or Apoda (caecilians).  Many Diplomates in this specialty work primarily as clinicians, while others are based in academic and research institutions, as well as industry.
