I'm not 100% sure but I think the story goes that a palaentologist found a fossil a hithero unknown species of turtles and - being a discworld fan - named that species after Terry Pratchett.
Just like Gary Larson has a louse (???) named after him (somethingsomething garylarsonis IIRC...)

Yeah, thats it. He has a plastic cast of one of it's bones as a paperweight. What do *I* have to do to get a big marine reptile named after me?

I suggest a visit to the seaside combined with a lot of scuba diving. Don't forget to take an underwater camera!
