We would like to thank the esteemed readers for their elaborative reading and showing great interest in the paper. We really appreciate their keen observation and comments on the paper. [1] The points raised are very important and we sincerely thank them for bringing out the shortcomings.

Medical knowledge is not limited to the boundaries of specialties or super specialties; writing paper is not only about the subject but innovative idea, new concept, language, writing, compiling, and conclusion are its other necessary components. As per guidelines all the authors have contributed enough toward this publication to justify authorship criteria.

We have made exhaustive search of literature to bring out this paper. Our idea was just to simplify the subject and make it easy to remember, and not to disgrace anyone or disrespect history. However, if information from the same [1] appears to hurt someone that is solely unintentional and we apologize for that.

We have already mentioned in the text that this is the collection of animal eponyms and conditions pronounced same as various animals. Hence, though LAMB and LEOPARD are acronyms they are being added to make them easy to remember.
