Rare Spider Named After David Bowie

spiderbowie

A rare species of yellow spider, found only in parts of Malaysia, was just recently given the name Heteropoda davidbowie, an homage to both Bowie and his 1972 rock opus The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Peter Jaeger, a German spider expert who gave Bowie the nod for his "contribution" to the world of arachnids, told London's Telegraph that naming spiders after celebrities is effective in attracting attention to mission of preserving the animals' habitat. No word on whether is Jaeger is actually a fan of Bowie's or his concept album. (via The Daily Swarm)
