Agkistrodon piscivorous- cottonmouth or water moccasin.

How about Necturus maculosus?

This game could go on for a while...

Here's one of my all-time favourite latin names; <html><b><i> Parademansia microlepidota </i></b></html>.

I just love the way it sounds...

The smooth scaled snake from New south Wales and Qeensland, this is often mistaken for the Taipan but is 4 times as toxic
as a Taipan. The book says the venom from one bite, could kill 125,000 mice
Simon, where did you pull that name from? LOL

Roy,

That's a name that's always stuck with me, for some reason, lol!.
<html><b><i>Parademansia</i></b></html> is the old taxonomy that I've always been used to. I believe that the Inland Taipan, or Fierce Snake has since been moved into the genus <html><b><i> Oxyuranus </i></b></html>, along with the other Taipans.

What a snake! I'd love to see one in the flesh.

Simon

Checkered garter, Queen Snake, Northern Water Snake, Western Hognose Snake

No takers for Necturus maculosus?

How about Eurycea bislineata?

erm... necturus is a complex of neotenic slamanders -- waterdogs. Not sure of this exact species, but i'm gonna take a guess that its a Canadian version of the common mudpuppy.

How about tantilla hobartsmithi?

Leaf chameleon from Kenya. Just saw them on a wholesale list!

Here's a favorite of mine, Clelia clelia. I'm sure someone would guess this one in a jiffy, but I think it's a cool sounding name.
