Celebrities with bugs or animals named after them!

Sara here — So I was reading about how Leonardo DiCaprio got a new beetle named after him… and it got me to think… Do other celebrities have bugs named after them too?  

Well, the answer is, YES! ….. YES! YES! YES! 

In fact, there’s a pretty extensive Wikipedia page devoted to this.  Check it out here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_organisms_named_after_famous_people

Some honorable mentions include: 

Stephen Colbert, George W. Bush, Liv Tyler, Kate Winslet = all Beetles

Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga = All have wasps

 

Angelina Jolie and Harrison Ford = spiders

Madonna = ant

Barak Obama = fish

Michael Jackson = sea slug        

J-Lo = dust mite

Even our current president Donald J. Trump has his very own moth = Neopalpa donaldtrumpi
