Just for the record Thingodonta was just a working name for a weirdo that
ended up being called _Yalkaparadon_ (weirdodonta was a working name for
another taxon) and _Monthypythonoides_ is about to be synomonised with
_Liasis_. Too much time on our hands? No, we call it a sense of humour.
I'ld explain the concept, only I haven't got time :-).
