Bubbles the chimp, Michael Jackson’s former pet, is now the 29-year old alpha male of a group of seven at a Florida chimp sanctuary, and you can buy his paintings at $1,500 a pop. He shares his digs with other abandoned performing apes that have had shattered and miserable lives.
Barack Obama is one of five politicians who have had their names attached to newly discovered species of fish. Along with Etheostoma obama, there are species named after Teddy Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Al Gore. All five of the fish are newly discovered darters native to the rivers and creeks of northern Alabama and eastern Tennessee. Barack Obama also has a small carnivorous dinosaur named after him (Obamadon gracilis), as well as a lichen (Caloplaca obamae), and a worm (Paragordius obamai).
