    Um, yeah, you kind of lost me too.

    EDIT: No, wait, I see it now. Those damn reptilian snails will be the death of the Dark Continent!

    "Among the reptiles in the Sahara's rivers and pools can be found snails, brine and algae shrimp, plus other types of crustaceans."

    If this is what you're referring to, they are saying that the snails, etc are living in the same area as some of the previously mentioned reptiles, not that they are reptiles themselves.

    I don't think so. I think they meant to use "fauna" or something instead of "reptiles" there; that's an odd English construction to use if you want to say that these things also live in the water.

    I agree that it is akward writing. But I'm still missing what is so in-factual on this page to warrant Steve's post.

    Maybe he's confused by the whole "water in the Sahara" thing?

    'Fauna' means Animals living in an area
    'Flaura' is the plant life living in an area

    That's iirc...

    Hi Greeno

    Reptiles .... Republicans ..... I think you made a typo. Easy to see how you mixed the 2 together especially as they both have forked tongues.

    Word to your mother, dawg :p

    I work in a library, and we have a few copies of his stuff. Amusingly, you need to show ID and ask for the material at our desk before you can read it.

    "Numerous types of reptiles - including frogs, toads, and crocodiles -"

    Frogs and toads are amphibians.
