A prehistoric crocodile first discovered in 1909 has now been given the biomial name of Lemmysaurus obtusidens.  That’s right; a scaly, blunt-toothed, armor adorned bad ass has been named in honor of Lemmy of Motorhead.  I think Lemmy would like the comparison and honor.

No word if the crocodile’s remains were found in a pile of Jack Daniel’s bottles and cigarette ash.
