No, it means "Ninja turtle".
I am fighting the desire to ask if the reason that Montypythonoides is
dubious is because all they found was its knee. (ni)
_Montypythonoides riversleighensis_ was synonymized with the extant python
genus _Morelia_, so it is no longer considered a valid genus. Hopefully
this will set your mind at ease.
(Of course, if someone did discover the knee of a snake, it might indeed be
an important discovery!)
