So, heres a good example of naming gone awry. Any one see the ad for a "sunglow" sand boa? Now, if your coming into sands from red tails or colubrids sunglow means a hypo-albino animal. While this particular sand just looks to be more orange than your typical (or old school) albino.
“There is a grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that whilst this planet has gone on cycling according to the fixed laws of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” -C. Darwin, 1859
