Hey, I was watching the local TV station tonight and they had a news topic about the Belgian biologist "Jan Bosselaers" who discovered a new sort of spider.  Now, the reason it was on the local news was because he named the spider after a famous TV-show for kids called "Kabouter Plop".  It's a show about gnomes or dwarves (what is, or is there a difference?) living somewhere in a fabulous forest.  He named them after these gnomes because it looks like these spiders are wearing tiny caps simmilar to the ones the gnomes are wearing.  <br><br>And now the best part of the story, at the end of the interview Jan is asked if he gave more special names to new species.  Well, he did, he actually named one after Frank Zappa! Because the spider has a print on his body in the shape of Frank's famous moustache, how about that?<br><br>Check it out!<br><br>http://homepage.ntlworld.com/andymurkin/Resources/MusicRes/ZapRes/spider.html<br><br>Or maybe this is just an old story, what the hell, hooray for the Belgian's!!!!<br>
