Aw that's not very fair. How come all the other sciences get a formal name?
Why is it just "lizard workers?" Last I checked, herpetology was a valid

Sorry for getting all nit picky, but I do so hate it when the rest of the
reptilia get brushed into a corner in order to make room for their larger
archosaurian cousins.
