This report on the BBC News website amused me :-
"US presidents tend to receive their fair share of honours, but Donald Trump may want to ignore his latest one.
A newly discovered amphibian that buries its head in the sand has been named after him, apparently in response to his comments about climate change.
The Dermophis donaldtrumpi, which was discovered in Panama, was named by the head of a company that had bid $25,000 (£19,800) at auction for the privilege.
The company said it wanted to raise awareness about climate change.
"[Dermophis donaldtrumpi] is particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change and is therefore in danger of becoming extinct as a direct result of its namesake's climate policies," said EnviroBuild co-founder Aidan Bell in a statement.
The small, blind, creature is a type of caecilian that primarily lives underground, and Mr Bell drew an unflattering comparison between its behaviour and Mr Trump's.
"Burrowing [his] head underground helps Donald Trump when avoiding scientific consensus on anthropomorphic climate change," he wrote."
The full article can be found at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-46614138.
I know our great leader Syd will know what caecilian means but for the rest of us it is defined as :-
"Caecilians (pronounced seh-SILL-yens) are tropical amphibians that look like large worms or slick snakes. They have no arms or legs, and sometimes it's hard to tell which end is the head and which is the tail! Their shiny skin is ringed with skin folds called annuli."
