If Galileo used mathematics to measure Dante’s Hell, why can’t I use ecology to count biblical lizards?

Galileo Galilei was obviously in a humorous mood when he used mathematics to measure the hell described in the Divine Comedy. The subject was not real, but the calculations were valid and didactical. King Solomon probably did not exist, but following Galileo, here I apply ecological principles to the lizards and palace described in biblical texts.
