An English electrician is to have a dinosaur named after him – he discovered it.



BBC article here

I appreciate that armstrongi recognises his valuable contribution to palaeontology but it’s not very ‘electrical’.

Any other suggestions from the peanut gallery? …

With graduated teeth like that, I'd call it a Strip-a-saurus.

Imagine that on your electricians CV:
I have a dinosaur named after me.
You'd be first in line for drug testing.
