Razer's Fascination with Animal Kingdom

Razer has been leading hardware manufacture company for gaming products in last decade. I own a lot of Razer stuff so got curious why they name their devices weirdly. So did some digging and found there is a pattern Razer has been using in last few years. It was some refreshing stuff. So here it is.

Latest Razer Keyboards: Tarantula, Arctosa, Lycosa
all of these are species of a spider.

Mouse: Deathaadder, Mamba,Naga
all of these are species of snake

Mouse pads: Goliathus,Megasoma, Sphex, Vespula
Goliathus and Megasoma are species of beetle. While Sphex and Vespula are species of
Wasp. I guess they used two different species because of two different type of mouspads. Goliathus and Megasoma are cloth based, while Sphex and Vespula are Hard
surface pads.

Headphones: Moray,Carcharias,Megalodon,Orca
These all are species of sharks

Designer Names:Even the Names are designed in accordance with the species. Lycosa's "O" is designed like a spider. Megalodon's "G" indicates a shark's fin. Vespula's "P" has a wing of wasp alongside. Goliathus's "O" is beetle shaped. Naga's "N" is clearly a snake.
