Squamata (order) (Reptilia (class), Vertebrata (subphylum), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Order of reptiles distinguished by the horny scales or shields on the skin, either egg-laying or with live births, having movable quadrate bones making it possible to move the upper jaw relative to the braincase, and a male hemipenis, which is unique among vertebrates. Dating from the Upper Jurassic to present, represented by approximately 7,900 living species of lizards, snakes, and amphisbaenid "worm-lizards."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Orde van reptielen die worden gekenmerkt door de hoornen schubben of schilden op de huid. De dieren leggen eieren of baren levend. Ze hebben beweegbare vierkantsbenen, waardoor ze de bovenkaak kunnen bewegen ten opzichte van de hersenschedel. De mannetjes hebben een hemipenis, hetgeen uniek is voor gewervelde dieren. De eerste soorten ontstonden in de Boven-Jura. De orde bevat ongeveer 7900 levende soorten hagedissen, slangen en echte wormhagedissen.
