New tree frog named for Ozzy Osbourne

Back in 1981, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bat while performing on stage. More than 25 years later, a newly discovered species of tree frog has been named in his honor. No, the tiny Amazonian Dendropsophus ozzyi does not prey on bats, but it does sound like them. The males of the species have especially large vocal sacs that they use to produce high-pitched noises and communicate with females, National Geographic reports.
