Leo DiCaprio Has Beetle Named After Him

 

Beetle > Oscar.

 

Scientists have discovered a new species of water beetle in Malaysia…and named it after Leonardo DiCaprio.

 

The official name of the beetle? Grouvellinus leonardodicaprioi. (It just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?)

 

Leo, who’s Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation just celebrated it’s 20th anniversary, seemed pretty pumped up about the honour…making it his profile picture on Facebook:
