Johnny Depp's Acting Skills Inspire Name For Extinct Creature!!!

Filed under: Johnny DeppScience!Amazing

Johnny Depp has had many memorable roles.

But his most famous role may be his turn in Edward Scissorhands where he plays the title role of an artificial man who has scissors for hands.

In fact, it is SO famous that a 505-million-year-old fossil of an extinct creature has been named after Depp because of this character.

The extinct great ancestor of lobsters has been deemed Kooteninchela deppi .

Here's what a scientist said:

"When I first saw the pair of isolated claws in the fossil records of this species, I could not help but think of Edward Scissorhands. Even the genus name, Kootenichela, includes the reference to this film, as 'chela' is Latin for claws or scissors. In truth, I am also a bit of a Depp fan and so what better way to honor the man than to immortalize him as an ancient creature that once roamed the sea?"

Wow!!!

We wonder if Depp will call the scientist up to thank him!

It isn't everyday that one gets an honor such as this!!!

Check out a picture of the extinct creature… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
