Last week, a new tarantula species was discovered in Arizona and New Mexico. The scientist who discovered it, Dr. Brent E. Hendrixson, must be a big Megadeth fan, because he gave it the scientific name Aphonopelma Davemustainei.
Dave tweeted about it along with a photo of a specimen Dr. Hendrixson gave him.
