I guess the residents of Barbados are not as amused as we are about some fame-whoring scientist tripping over a snake they have seen their whole lives and naming it after his spouse. "How dare this man come in here and name a snake after his wife?" said the writer who identified themselves as Margaret Knight. Even Columbus didn't try to name anything after his wife and he discovered a whole bunch of people no one in Europe had ever seen, but that's science - Hedges was first to 'discover' Leptotyphlops carlae was a new species. I suppose if Barbados residents don't like being made to look like ignorant savages by visiting foreigners, they should get a camera and a piece of paper and start writing things down. Then they can name snakes after their own wives.
