New frog species named after Ozzy Osbourne

Los Angeles: Scientists have named a new species of frog as Pendropsophus ozzy in honour of singer Ozzy Osbourne.

The 19.4mm amphibian was discovered by scientists working in the Brazilian Amazon during a bio-diversity survey in 2009 and was named after the 64-year-old singer, who infamously bit the head off a bat during a gig in 1982, reports femalefirst.co.uk. 

Ozzy's daughter Kelly was thrilled by this honour.

Taking to her official Twitter page she wrote "You know you have made it when they name a whole new species of frog after you!!! Congratulations dad @OzzyOsbourne (sic)," posting a link of one of the articles about the study.
