Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers have been forever immortalized — in fossil form.
Thanks to a professor of paleontology at the University of Iowa, two newly discovered fossils have been named after the legendary trio, who have been entertaining audiences at home in Newfoundland and Labrador — and far beyond — for decades.
The 460-million-year-old trilobite species will be known as Oenonella wasisnamei and Oenenella otherfellersorum.
