Abstract: The TIGR Reptile database (the new name for the EMBL Reptile Database in previous Annual Checklists) provides information on the classification of all living reptiles (not dinosaurs) by listing all species and their higher taxa such as families. The database lists all living snakes, lizards, amphisbaenians (worm lizards), tuataras, turtles, and crocodiles. The focus is on scientific names, synonyms, distributions and references. Within the original TIGR database there are a limited number of species accounts containing descriptions and links to external sources including 7,754 photos.
