@Carla_Sinclair, would you do me (and every other biologist on this planet) a favour and correct “canis lupus” to “Canis lupus”?

I’m not even asking for Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758 - which would be

but italicising and Capitalising is important to scientists. Seriously.

Don’t do it @Carla_Sinclair! That’s just what Big Biology wants you to do.

I am in pain when I look at species names not following THE CODE. Am I nothing to you? I’m sure as hell not big biology, I’m academic plancton! It hurts. Please. Make it stop.

I am probably shouting at the clouds here, but using infantilised language to describe dogs, for example ‘doggo’ and ‘pupper’, really annoys me. This is what 5 year olds, not adults, call dogs.
