Let $R$ be a ring and $Z(R)$ be the set of all zero-divisors of $R$. The total graph of $R$, denoted by $T(\Gamma (R))$ is a graph with all elements of $R$ as vertices, and two distinct vertices $x, y\in R$ are adjacent if and only if $x+ y\in Z(R)$. Let the regular graph of $R$, $\mathrm{Reg} (\Gamma (R))$, be the induced subgraph of $T(\Gamma (R))$ on the regular elements of $R$. In 2008, Anderson and Badawi proved that the girth of the total graph and the regular graph of a commutative ring are contained in the set $\{ 3, 4, \infty \} $. In this paper, we extend this result to an arbitrary ring (not necessarily commutative). We also prove that if $R$ is a reduced left Noetherian ring and $2\not\in Z(R)$, then the chromatic number and the clique number of $\mathrm{Reg} (\Gamma (R))$ are the same and they are ${2}^{r} $, where $r$ is the number of minimal prime ideals of $R$. Among other results, we show that if $R$ is a semiprime left Noetherian ring and $\mathrm{Reg} (R)$ is finite, then $R$ is finite.
