Dr. Brian Fisher has found 800 new ant species recently in Madagascar and he is selling off names for them to folks who will pony up $10,000 or more to donate to the building of a new bio diversity center on the African island.
The Ant Man says hes even willing to name an ant genus a group of ant species after anyone who donates $25,000 or more.
Fishers got ants in his pants to raise the money as construction is currently $75,000 short of beginning and the loans hes taken out to fund his research need to be repaid soon.
He figures its a great opportunity for those who want to create a legacy that will last forever especially because the name will be published in text books in years to come.
