(KGTV)- A story that caught our eye claims scientists have named an extinct 10-armed ancestor of the octopus after President Biden.
It's actually true.
The 300-million-year-old cephalopod was discovered in Montana and represents the earliest known ancestor of both the octopus and the vampire squid.
In a study released this month, the creature was named Syllipsimopodi Bideni.
The Bideni part is indeed named after Joe Biden, who was inaugurated around the time the name was submitted.
Naming a species after a president isn't new. Barack Obama and Donald Trump were given the same honor.
