Lord, is this really real?!

Masiakasaurus was a small predatory (theropod) dinosaur from Madagascar, named in 2001.

The dinosaur species Masiakasaurus knopfleri was named after the musician Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits. The palaeontologists were listening to Dire Straits recordings when they discovered the species.

Great classification, hahahahah!!!

...Anyway, now I want to find a dinosaur just to name it after a song or a singer I like, too

The only other similar case I knew was the Lucy one, the australopithecus named after the Beatles' song, but that one is already very well known, hehe Very Happy
