In 2014, a commercial fossil company stumbled onto the tail of a ankylosaur, which is plant-eating dinosaur. Because of it’s armored skin, defensive club at the end of it’s tail, and the ability to hit a T-Rex in the shins, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto has named it after Zuul from Ghostbusters.
“There is no Dana, only Zuul.”
After examining the new species, Victoria Arbour, just sort of threw out the name to her coworker David Evans. She said…
“David and I batted around some ideas and I half-jokingly threw up Zuul. He loved it immediately.”
Not only that, but Dan Aykroyd aka Dr. Raymond Stantz, stopped by to meet Zuul face to face.
Ok, that’s pretty cool!
