My favorite Order of reptles are Crocodylia. Simply because of the intelligence based in these animals and the lack of interest in this hobby. You will find many reptile owners touting the intelligence and learning powers of the animals they keep as pets. However, there is no doubting one fact about crocodilians - that they are the only reptiles with a brain advanced enough to contain a cerebral cortex. This is the area of the brain where thought takes place. Therefore, the arguement would be that crocodilians possess some ability to think.
My favorite Species would be freshwater crocodiles ( C. johnstoni) because they are one of the only species that hasn't had much confrontations with man. Plus the breeding is generally different than most other species of crocs.
Orinocos are also one of my favorites, too.
