Extinct Lizard Named After Jim Morrison

The largest plant-eating lizard ever discovered, a 6-foot, 60-pound species that lived between 36 and 40 million years ago, has been named Barbaturex morrisoni in honor of the late Doors frontman Jim Morrison, who referred to himself as “The Lizard King.” What do you think?

  • “Getting extinct species named after them is what The Doors were all about.”

  • “By 38 million years ago, everyone could already see it was destroying itself.”

    Shirley Trainor
  • “John Densmore, snubbed again.”
