Clint Eastwood a Composer? Steve Irwin a Scientist?
The following was posted in Garritan General Discussion. I wanted to respond to this there but the subject is off-topic:
Many well-known people are so because they are truely gifted and extraordinarily motivated. I am a fan of Steve Irwin and when I heard he was killed by a sting ray it made me very sad. I recently purchased a new book called "Varanoid Lizards of the World". This is a recent treastise on monitor lizards and their close relatives. Eric Pinka and Dennis King put this thing together. The book covers every known species of monitor know to science. They decided to ask those scientists who knew most about their subjects to write the chapters covering each species. I read in there about a recently discovered species named Varanus keithhornei. Discovered in 1978, it is a little known species from Queensland (one of my favorite places ). Pausing, I looked at the author of the chapter: Steve Irwin.
