Now, a fish named Obama!
Washington, Nov. 30 (ANI): A newly discovered species of fish have been named after U.S. presidents and a vice president, including Barack Obama.
Professor Richard Mayden of the Saint Louis University's Department of Biology and Dr. Steven Layman of Geosyntec Consultants discovered the new species of darter fish.
According to Politico, the two described them in a new article in the Bulletin of the Alabama Museum of Natural History.
"We chose President Obama for his environmental leadership, particularly in the areas of clean energy and environmental protection, and because he is one of our first leaders to approach conservation and environmental protection from a more global vision," Layman said about the Obama fish, as quoted by BuzzFeed.
The researchers also named other species of the fish after former Presidents Bill Clinton, Teddy Roosevelt, and Jimmy Carter and former Vice President Al Gore.
The fish were named for those leaders because of their environmental stewardship. (ANI)
