Trivia

Origin

Janovy's color scheme is similar to its species' possible namesake, Opheodrys aestivus, the North American grass snake, while Oxybelis fulgidus, the Central and South American vine snake, may be the basis for its general serpentine features. Its head and general body shape, as well as the yellow crest on its body and shoulders, may be based on the birds of paradise flowers or false birds of paradise. Its evolutionary line was confirmed by Ken Sugimori to have been based on French royalty. Janovy's physical appearance may have been based on the acanthus leaf motifs used specially during the 14th and 18th centuries.

Name origin

Janovy's name may come from 蛇 ja, meaning snake, and canopy or ivy.

In other languages

Chinese (Mandarin) 青藤蛇 Qīng Téng Shé Literally "Green vine snake". May also be from 常青藤 (ivy).
