The term “reptile” here applies to all large, scaled, cold-blooded creatures; not just true reptiles, but amphibians as well.  Any reptile known to period Europeans may be used in the Society – though, if the reptile is not itself European, its use may be considered a step from period practice, as is the case for the alligator.  (An exception would be made for non-European reptiles actually used in period European armory, but no examples have been adduced.)
