Los Angeles: Scientists have named a new species of frog as Pendropsophus ozzy in honour of Singer Ozzy Osbourne.
The 19.4mm amphibian was discovered by scientists working in the Brazilian Amazon during a bio-diversity survey in 2009 and was named after the 64-year-old singer, who infamously bit the head off a bat during a gig in 1982, reports femalefirst.co.uk. Ozzy's daughter Kelly was thrilled by this honour.
