Chattanooga, Tennessee—

A new species of MILLIPEDE was recently discovered in the Appalachian Mountains, and Virginia Tech scientists have named it Nannaria swiftae . . . after TAYLOR SWIFT.

No, not because this particular millipede has an inability to move on from its former mates.

One of those scientists, Derek Hennen, says, quote, “Her music helped me get through the highs and lows of graduate school, so naming a new millipede species after her is my way of saying thanks.”

And he Tweeted, quote, “I’m a big fan of her music, so I wanted to show my appreciation by naming this new species from Tennessee after her.  A high honor!”
