A recent discovery in the mountainous forests of Peru has led scientists to name a newly found lizard species after Bruce Dickinson, the frontman of Iron Maiden.

The lizard, named Enyalioides dickinsoni, was spotted by researchers at the Tambopata National Reserve in the Cordillera de Colán mountain range, situated about 460 miles north of Lima, Peru. These lizards typically grow to about 11 inches in length and sport a combination of greenish and yellowish hues. Both male and female Enyalioides dickinsoni feature a distinctive spiky crest along their backs.

These creatures have been observed at various locations within elevations ranging from 4,600 to 5,600 feet in the mountainous forests, according to findings reported by Reptiles Magazine.

Dr. Alessandro Catenazzi, a Peruvian biologist involved in the discovery, expressed admiration for Bruce Dickinson, citing his influence and diverse accomplishments. Naming the new species after him serves as a tribute to Dickinson’s impact and passions.

Dr. Scott L. Travers, a biologist from the United States who participated in the expedition, emphasized the significance of collaborative scientific research and conservation efforts in preserving the rich biodiversity of the Amazon.

Apart from this discovery, Bruce Dickinson is promoting his new solo album, The Mandrake Project, with signing sessions at hmv stores next month, supported by Planet Rock. He’s also planning a six-date tour in the UK for May, playing alongside Roy Z, Dave Moreno, Tanya O’Callaghan, and Mistheria.
