I'd be up for that. Especially since, at least for now, there don't seem to be the amount of spottings in Indonesia as there are in a lot of other countries. So just a lizards and snakes group might be quite sparse for a while ;)

I've created a snakes and lizards of Indonesia one.
Though I'm quite happy to change the name to Reptiles and Amphibians as that would encompass more.

Done and done. Thanks for setting it up! We still need a general Mammals of Indonesia, and Reptiles and Amphibians of Indonesia ;)
