: : Scott,

: : Another prime example of an in-appropriate common name! I could never figure out how Pseudechis australis, (Mulga or the King Brown), was assigned to the genus Pseudechis, Australian "Black" Snakes".

: Just one of many unfortunate examples of bad common names misleading people. That's why using scientific names is so much better... ;-)

Please don't "BAN" common names, it would be disadvantageous to us common folk, LOL.

AND:

Just one other thing regarding Cobra pronunciation.

I like Nah Jah beter than Nah Yah, even though it doesn't conform to the latin, greek or place of origin; easier to say and sounds better, double LOL. Of course just my opinion and heck, just spelling the scientific names is difficult enough, Hee, Hee!!!

Cheers,

Derek K.
