Guess who has a dinosaur named after him? You’re right — President Obama! Wow, you’re good guessers.
In the picture, Obamadon is the cute one in the foreground. I think the other one is John McCain, screaming at Obamadon to get off his rock.
The lizard sized dinosaur is thought to have lived on insects, and was small in stature in comparison to other known behemoths. Researchers say that the dinosaur’s size is not in anyway a political reference. The name Obamadon was chosen due to the lizard’s tall, straight teeth. According to sci-news.comPaleontologist Nick Longrich said, “Obama has these tall, straight incisors and a great smile.”
Interestingly enough, our President has a fish and a fungus named for him as well:
It’s nice to have a President who is so well-respected, although George W. Bush also had something named after him…
You had to see that one coming. 🙂
This is our daily open thread — It’s Friday, Obamadonbots!
