A man bought the rights to officially name the species Dermophis donaldtrumpi, 

Aidan Bell, head of sustainable building materials company EnviroBuild, paid $25,000 at an auction to name the species Dermophis donaldtrumpiaccording to the Guardian.


Bell said the creature's tendency to bury its head in the sand is similar to Trump’s approach to global warming and climate change.

“It is the perfect name,” Bell told the Guardian. “Caecilian is taken from the Latin caecus,meaning ‘blind’, perfectly mirroring the strategic vision President Trump has consistently shown towards climate change.”

The scientists who discovered the creature have agreed to use the new name when they publish their find in scientific literature.

The small, legless amphibian was found in Panama. The naming rights were auctioned off to raise money for the Rainforest Trust, a nonprofit environmental group.

A new moth whose wings resemble Trump’s hair was last year named after the president. The researcher who found the moth decided to name it Neopalpa donaldtrumpi to raise awareness for protecting fragile habitats in California and Mexico, according to Science Magazine.
