Reptile is a species name. A group of animals having similar characteristics belong to one type of species. Lizard, crocodile etc belong to the species "REPTILE".

While daisy, stem and petals all belong to the plant or vegetarian family, the alligator is a reptile. Thus it is different from the others.
