king of chlamydia

i was sitting in my biology class this week and my professor put up a picture of this little guy. i noticed the little italicized letters underneath the picture. the frilled-necked lizard (aka frilled lizard or frilled dragon) has one of the most embarrassing latin classification names out there. Chlamydosaurus kingii. now tell me you dont think of a sexual transmitted disease when you see that. and im not sure what the real translation is but until i find out it will be king of chlamydia.
