Barack Obama left the white house on 20th of Jan 2017. He finished his presidential tenure and is headed on his new journey to become ‘Citizen Barack Obama‘. He may or may not have roles in politics, but his name will live forever. The scientific community have immortalized him by giving his name to nine different creatures from extinct lizards to trapdoor spiders. Obama is going to keep the record of having most animal species named after him among US presidents followed by Theodore Roosevelt with seven. Now President Donald Trump has an extinct sea urchin and scaly headed moth named after him – Tetragramma donaldtrumpi and Neopalpa donaldtrumpi respectively. Sirindhorn, the princess of Thailand, has the most species named after her of any political leader, with thirteen. Lady Gaga has a whooping 19 species of fern named after her.
