Reptiles are trouble, for categories at least. In the common vernacular they're all the sauropsids that aren't birds, but when dealing with fossils this quickly becomes ridiculous (Microraptor is a reptile and Archaeopteryx isn't?). So to attempt a compromise let's treat Archosaurs as a subcategory of reptiles but not place individual crocodile, pterosaur, dinosaur and bird articles in the reptile category. Hopefully this will keep reptiles at their most reptilian and avoid an overwhelming number of articles.
