Talking 🕷4 NEW Spider Species Named After Heavy Metal Rockers 🎸

Four new species belonging to the Sparianthinae family of spiders have been discovered by Brazilian biologist Christina Rheims and named after the frontmen of Iron Maiden, Scorpions, Def Leppard and Angra. Being a fan of heavy metal rock music, Rheims named them Extraordinarius bruceickinsoni, E. klausmeinei, E. rickalleni and E. andrematosi after Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, Scorpion's Klaus Meine, Def Leppard's Rick Allen and Angra's Andre Matos.
