>>A quote from the EMBL Reptile Database which in this particular case had a note on this:

>>"Etymology: "Ophiophagus" is derived from Greek, meaning "snake-eating" and hannah is derived from the name of tree-dwelling nymphs in Greek mythology (for the arboreal lifestyle)."

>>This is were I found it:
>>http://srs.embl-heidelberg.de:8000/srs5bin/cgi-bin/wgetz?-e [REPTILIA-Species:'Ophiophagus_SP_hannah']
>>
>>/Sundberg

If I had to guess, I would have guessed that Hannah was someone's surname.
