An ancient swamp-dwelling pig has been named after Mick Jagger by scientists due to its 'large, sensitive lips.'
Ellen Miller, who was part of the team that discovered the fossils said: “I like the Rolling Stones, I’m a huge Stones fan.”
Which is why the creature, which is believed to have been about the size of a deer, is now known by the scientific name Jaggermeryx naida, or ‘Jagger’s water nymph.’
Professor Miller uncovered several fossilised jaw fragments belonging to the animal at a remote site in the Egyptian desert. The area was swamp land millions of years ago when the pig roamed the Earth.
