Scientists have named a recently discovered fossil species of Colymbosathon ecplecticos. This little critter lived 425 million years ago and is an unusual find in that, as well as it shell, its ‘soft bits’ were also well preserved. But the bit I really like is it latin name which means “amazing swimmer with a large penis“. Now that’s a species to aspire to!
