The term "herps" refers to all reptiles and amphibians. Here are some of my personal favorites. There's some other stuff, too.
rec.pets.herp - This is the place to go for tons of information about all pet reptiles and amphibians. Many knowledgable and helpful people read and post to this group regularly. An important resource.
sci.bio.herp - While rec.pets.herp is concerned with herps as pets, this newsgroup has discussion about herps as subjects of scientific research. While you will doubtless learn lots of interesting things here, this is not the place to post questions about your pets.
alt.binaries.pictures.animals - This is a good place to find and post pictures of animals of all types. Niether of the herp groups tolerate the posting of binaries, so if you want readers of those groups to see your pictures, post them to this group and maybe post a little text message to the herp groups telling readers where they can find your photos.
The rec.pets.herp FAQ - Recent versions of this comprehensive document can always be found at RTFM. You can also find an online version at the current maintainer's web page. This document answers all sorts of common questions about what to feed, how to breed, and where to get your future pet.
