Internet Renames Animals…And It’s Brilliant

Scientists, biologists, marine experts – they’re amazing. But they don’t always possess the creativity needed to properly name the creatures they discover. Luckily, the Internet is here to help. The Internet has renamed animals and it’s hysterical. Hopefully updating the planet’s textbooks won’t be too much of a burden now that these spot-on animal names have been determined. Sit back, relax, and laugh out loud as you read what the Internet has renamed animals. Leave a comment telling us your favorite one or even offer us a new one to add to the list!
