Cambrian Fossil Linked to Actor Johnny Depp

Cambrian Fossil Linked to Actor Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp–yes, the swashbuckling, Kentucky native–has found his place in paleontological history. A fossil of an early ancestor to both scorpions and lobsters has been found with claws like “scissor hand[s].” Keep going with the connection… Scissor hands, Edward, Edward Scissor Hands… played by actor JOHNNY DEPP. The scientist who discovered the remains of this little critter has christened it Kooteninchela deppi (pronounced Koo-ten-ee-che-la depp-eye) after the much loved, often over the top Mr. Depp.
