Micheal Crichton had a dinosaur named after him!! A new species of Ankylosaur was discovered, and named after the author of Jurassic Park. Granted, this news is 8 years old, but it is still pretty remarkable. The official name is Crichtonsaurus bohlini, is roughly 3 meters long, and named after the man that simultaneously had a number one movie, book, and t.v. show. (Image from Here
). If you haven't read his books, he is a fantastic author, and I highly recommend them.
