Taxonomy Humor



The science of naming species comes with a few perks. If you were studying the genus Gelae, how could you possibly resist naming the little beetles Gelae belae, Gelae donut, Gelae fish and Gelae rol? The bug pictured here is of the species Gelae baen. Pronounced just like you'd think. Yes it is. And that's just one of 17 examples of taxonomy humor you'll find at Buzzfeed. Link
