Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

At first, Latin names were quite hard to learn, I would have to read the same name over and over until I could memorize it :P Yet, now it has become more simple. It's as hard as common names now, and they've proven to be extremely useful! The problem is that people around here don't even know the common names of species, you say salamander and they think you are talking about a gecko, which they actually call iguana. Hehe...
