Herp Shorthand

Hey guys,anybody out there feel like composing a list of herp shorthand and slang terms?
I've picked up a lot since visiting here but there's still a lot of terms and abbreviations left to learn. For example when referring to Boas I see abbreviatons like bcc and bci(I think that's correct).
I think it'd be a great way for a lot of newbies as well as folks with peripheral interests in certain herps to learn without feeling like they're asking silly questions.

Thanks
