Carl Linnaeus Garden Uppsala Sweden

You don't often get to say famous and botanist in the same breath. But Carl Linnaeus, the man who gave us the Latin naming taxonomy for plants and animals, is about as famous as they come. Take your Home Sapiens self for a walk through his gardens in Uppsala, and marvel at natures diversity. You might not see Sid viciousi and Johnny rotteni. They were ancient trilobites. But if you're lucky, you might see some mold eating beetles named: Agathidium bushi, A. rumsfeldi and A. cheneyi.
