Another fossil that has been named after a Metalhead!
Previously there have been discoveries in the Metal community, Alex Webster, bassist of Cannibal Corpse holds one of the best titles with Websteroprion, I have to say but none are as Metal what has just been announced today.
Lemmysuchus, meaning Lemmy’s Crocodile was an absolutely huge 19ft long, which is about as long as a giraffe, creature. Easily one of the most deadly sea creature to have ever lived. Ironically the creature would have been in the UK sea some 165 million years ago.
After recently reexamining the dinosaur it has been noted that the sea crocodile was apart from other crocodiles and hence deserved a new name. Sea crocodiles are extinct now but they used to be truly nasty creatures. I also didn’t know that Lemmy got his nickname after always asking people “lemme a fiver“. What a man.
“Although Lemmy passed away at the end of 2015, we’d like to think that he would have raised a glass to Lemmysuchus, one of the nastiest sea creatures to have ever inhabited the Earth.”
Well isn’t that the most Metal thing you’ll hear today!
