Researchers at Yale University have dubbed a newly discovered species of dinosaur -- a lizard -- Obamadon gracilis, citing the president's broad smile, Reuters reports.
In modified Latin, Obamadon stands for "Obama's teeth," while gracilis means "slender."
"The lizard has these very tall, straight teeth and Obama has these tall, straight incisors and a great smile," said Nick Longrich, a paleontologist at Yale.
In the real world, it's quite common for large ships to be named after Presidents.

This unique species of lizard was also well known for killing larger animals, and then re-distributing the food to the smaller, more needy lizards.
