Johnny Depp the Fossil (9/12)


A British scientist David Legg found a 505 million-year-old fossil that reminded him of Edward Scissorhands. It had large scissor-like claws and could have been an ancestor of scorpions and lobsters. Being a fan of Depp, he decided to honour the actor by naming the fossil Kooteninchela deppi where the genus name, Kootenichela, includes the reference to this film, as ‘chela’ is Latin for claws or scissors and deppi for Depp!
