jejeje...Jaime, I swear is my last contribution on

religion and I'm tired, but if I'm not wrong in what I
remember from my greek lessons, lizard is actually
sauros, pronunciated "sah-bros".
So none is wright, jejeje.
The modern Greek pronunciation is indeed something like "SAH-vross",
but what's used in biological nomenclature is Latinized ancient Greek,
in which it's "SOW-ross".
Why can't you be a non-conformist just like everybody else?
