Unusual things named after famous people

A new amphibian discovered in Panama has been named after U.S. President Donald Trump following his comments about climate change.

 Called the Dermophis donaldtrumpi, the creature is blind and buries its head in the sand. EnviroBuild co-founder Aidan Bell, who won the naming rights, said in a statement, "[Dermophis donaldtrumpi] is particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change and is therefore in danger of becoming extinct as a direct result of its namesake's climate policies."
