Do you know your latin names...game

Hey everyone, lets play a game. If you can take the latin name I give you and translate it into the common name and then put your own latin name and see if anyone can guss the common name.

eg.
Boa constrictor imperator

Common red tail boa.


Can you idenify?
Acrantophis Dumerili?

-Just guessing, some sort of Madagascan Boa?-

LOL

Here's a couple of my favorite latin name because of the way they are pronounced:

Antaresia childreni(haha almost a give away)

Corallus caninus(what nice teeth, makes me think of canines, but on a snake)

Antaresia childreni..., Antaresia maculosis, Antaresia stimpsoni

I come from the era when the entire complex was all the same damn thing and bred with one another..
We called all of them childrens pythons in the 80's(Liasis childreni)
Stimpsoni were called Desert Childrens or Red childrens... It's funny how the price went up after the academics split and renamed them

And canina's, of course are Emeralds
