Every metal band worth its salt has its own liquor, t-shirts and picture discs galore, but now the best in the business has gone one better and has a motherfvcking SNAKE named after its singer-guitarist.
Yes, down in Equatorial Guinea, the new breed has been discovered. The Atheris Hetfieldi is an African bush viper with a triangular shaped head and strongly keeled scales, which gives them a dragon-like appearance.
The discovers are quoted as saying “We think that a mysterious venomous and cool looking snake, who lives in the base of a volcano lost in the middle of the tropical forest is very relatable to heavy metal! Naming a new species after someone as James brings more attention to the much needed biodiversity studies and field surveys.”
Rock n’ roll needs more venom in 2020 and…voila! I’m hoping for Kirk Hamster and Lars Ostrich next! 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍
