Rep: NewtZoo has started on the right path
Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

I also think using scientific nomenclature is better and should at least be used in conjuction with common names. I always have a problem when shopping around on Kingsnake.com because people use common names for animals that I have found out are a group of animals represented by one common name. Example: Wax Monkey frogs for sale.......but there are like three or four different kinds, so how do I know. Another problem is pet shops. Someone will ask me what i have at home and Ill say "T. granulosa" and they say " I love Fire Belly Newts!"...hugh.....!?!. So it can get hectic.But Im also a scientist and may be biased in my opinion.
