Rock Legends Get Spiders Named After Them...


A Brazilian biologist who specializes in spider and who likes heavy metal - has discovered four new spider species and named them after members of Iron Maiden, Scorpions, & Def Leppard

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson's spider: Extraordinarius bruceickinsoni

Scorpions frontman Klaus Meine's spider: Extraordinarius klausmeinei

Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen's spider: Extraordinarius rickalleni

The new spider species are 1 to 2 centimeters in length, nocturnal and not dangerous to humans (just like Klaus, Bruce & Rick)
