    So... What about Finnish language? Lohi = Salmon Käärme = Snake Dragon = Lohikäärme = SalmonSnake Fuck Lochness monster and similar. Think 'bout a biggest "fish" you can imagine... That is a danger-noodle... It can breath air and water... Fuck dragons... The Finnish mythological Fish-DangerNoodle is the stuff of nightmares.

    yeah, antlers are annually shed, horns are not. Horns are bone covered in a sheathe of keratin, antlers are bone covered with skin which then 'dies' when the antler matures.

    The Shrek statues are from a place in Scotland called Storybook Glen, it’s a shitty kids park full of all these fairy tale/children’s characters but the statues are all low budget/off in some way which makes the place lowkey horrifying.

    My favorite situation of this nature is the tale of ‘Syntarsus rhodesiensis’ which is a small carnivorous dinosaur from Southern Africa. It was named in 1969 and it’s author didn’t realize that the genus name ‘Syntarsus’ was preoccupied by a beetle. Decades later this error was caught by some invertebrate paleontologists who got tired of vertebrate paleontologists constantly using preoccupied names they decided to properly name the dinosaur ‘Megapnosaurus rhodesiensis’ which translates to “big dead lizard” as a jab at the vert crowd. To this day I have met Vertebrate Paleontologists who refuse to use that name because of the slight and either still erroneously refer to it as ‘Syntarsus’ or place it under the genus ‘Coelophysis’ even though they KNOW that the ‘rhodesiensis’ species is likely closer in relation to ‘Segisaurus’ and ‘Camposaurus’ than to the type species ‘Coelophysis bauri’. Personally, if vertebrate paleontologists want to avoid pot shots from the invert crowd then we should be better at double checking if a genus name is preoccupied or not.

    So the word is a latin coming from ancient Greek and since I am Greek I can she light to this horrendous name. Cut the word in two toLeeds and icthys. The first part is pronounced normally as Leed's. For the icthys part, drag the -i and -y as -ee. The -cth is again cut to -c and th and the first is pronounced as -h and the second as a simple -th. So you get: Leed's-ee-h-th-ee-s. Hope that helps!

    In Finnish mythology or suomenusko bears were thought to have been messengers of gods or even the manifestation of the god of forests Tapio. And there indeed was a belief that if you called a bear by it's real name "karhu" it would get mad and attack you, therefore different names such as otso, kontio and mesikämmen (literally nectarpaw). Even to this day bear is a significant symbol in Finnish culture. We have icebreakers that we use to save weak nations from ice that are named after bear nicknames, when shit hits the fan and police are helpless, they send in the special unit "karhuryhmä" or bear squad and it's also the symbol of out border guard.

    Fact check: Yes, the scientific name for the Western Lowland Gorilla is Gorilla gorilla gorilla. In a scientific name, the first name is the name of the genus, the first and second together form the species name, and the third is the subspecies. There are two different species of Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla and Gorilla beringei) which both have two different subspecies within them.
