And here a great list about animal and plant names, unusual and funny ones such as

  • Provocator Watson, 1882 (snail)
  • Problema Skinner & Williams, 1924 (skipper)
  • Darthvaderum Hunt, 1996 (mite)
  • Ichabodcraniosaurus Novacek, 1996 (dinosaur; originally found without a head - a head was found later, but no one is sure whether it's the correct head)
  • Chaos chaos Linnaeus, 1767 (amoeba)
  • Oedipus complex (salamander; now in genus Oedipina)
  • Erechthias beeblebroxi Robinson & Nelson, 1993 (tineid moth with false head; after Zaphod Beeblebrox, character from "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" with two heads)
...and many more ^_^

One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.

Then there was the new fossil snake genus (if that's not too tortured English) found in the Riversleigh limestone deposits in outback Queensland named Montypythonoides.
Heart disease kills more women than breast cancer, but heart attack symptoms differ from men's symptoms. Get to know your heart... it could save your life.

What Children Think Of The Sea!


A number of primary schools were doing a project on "The Sea." The children were asked to draw pictures or write about their experiences. Teachers then compared the results and put together some of the 'better' ones.

1. This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly age 6)

2. Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea because I think they have to plug themselves in to chargers. (Christopher age 7)

3. Oysters' balls are called pearls. (James age 6)

4. If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island. If you don't have sea all around you, you are incontinent. (Wayne age 7)

5. I think sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She's not my friend no more. (Kyle age 6)

6. A dolphin breathes through an asshole on the top of its head. (Billy age 8)

7. When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn't blow the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off eating beans. (William age 7)

8. I like mermaids. They are beautiful, and I like their shiny tails. How do mermaids get pregnant? (Helen age 6)
