Which Came First: Our 45th President or a Very Quaffed Moth?
We may not know specific details about our new president’s policies (or finances), but much has been said about his hair.
He’s had his hair a long time, right? I mean, his hair has been styled the same way most of his life.
Make of that what you will.
But Dr. Vazrick Nazari, an evolutionary biologist and systematist (I think that’s a fictional job). Anyway, he noticed a new species of moth while poking around the
basement attic archives of the Bohart Museum of Entomology at the University of California-Davis. Remember, pot is now legal in California, so these types of news stories are likely to surface more frequently.
Yes. We’re dealing with something the likes of which no one has ever never seen before (sound familiar?).
The moth has “yellowish white scales” on the top of its head.
Because Dr. Nazari discovered it, he got to name it.
It’s gets better.
N. donaldtrumpi’s natural habitat is Southern California and…wait for it…Mexico! The poor bugger’s digs are fragile, though, (much like 24 carat gold is soft) and is threatened by people stomping by or “dune-buggy enthusiasts.”
According to the article in my local newspaper (which was from Sarah Larimer of the Washington Post), Trump’s transition team has not responded to Dr. Nazari’s emails about his discovery which was published in the journal ZooKeys, which kind of sounds like a children’s magazine, but it’s probably a fine, reputable publication.
Hey, don’t blame/thank me! I just report this stuff.
