The "scientific name" of an animal consists of two levels of its taxonomic classification, the "genus" and "species." Scientific names are in Latin. They are usually printed in italics, with the genus capitalized. The scientific name of the green sea turtle is "Chelonia (genus) mydas (species)." Sometimes a species is further subdivided into subspecies, and the subspecies name is added to the scientific name. Thus the East Pacific green turtles scientific name is "Chelonia mydas agassizii".
