Scientists Name Newly Discovered Water Beetle After Leonardo DiCaprio!

Leonardo DiCaprio is a bug – err, big deal.

Citizen scientists in Malaysia discovered a new water beetle, and decided to name it after the 43-year-old screen star and environmental activist.

According to Taxon Expeditions, the scientists discovered the bug in the Maliau Basin in Malaysian Borneo. The tribute marks the 20th anniversary of his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which supports projects dedicated to the preservation of biodiversity.

And he’s evidently a fan of the new creature! Leo just uploaded a picture of the bug named on his behalf as his new Facebook picture.

  • asleo

    I think that people refers to his girlfriends… ( beetle) 😅

  • pppf

    LOL. He replaced his Facebook pic with the beetle. Doesn’t every guy want to be a Beatle, I mean a beetle.

    Cute video too.

  • also…

    lol thats cute that he did that to his facebook pic

  • Sunflower

    New thread! Wooohooo. That other one was getting painful to follow. The photo at the beginning of the video (in grey suit) is one of my favorite Leo looks. That and all of the Great Gatsby is peak Leo in my opinion.

  • Annabelle Ashcroft

    So happy!!

  • Hibiscus

    I saw that he changed his facebook photo to the beetle. As Also said, it is cute.

  • Dieter from Sprockets

    a creepy stalker of young women

    I Don’t want to reply on the old thread because it is so out of order but I saw that the Brazilian lady video is from Feb. Therefore there’s have been no Leo with Camilla sightings since Brando? Or am I forgetting or missing something?

  • guest smith

    Hi, that would be correct. She been posting from LA the last couple of days. Looks like she didn’t make the trip to Vegas with him. Maybe NYC but no sightings yet.

  • Carol

    Alyssa you no longer have a strict sleeping schedule?!

  • Carol

    There’s few Leo’s sightings since Brando . He’s probably spending more time at home with Camila.

  • Carol

    How you know she was not in Vegas ?
    lol she also didn’t post a pic about Brando but we know she was there lol😛

  • also…

    they broke up

  • Annabelle Ashcroft

  • Annabelle Ashcroft

  • DiCaprioIsShit

    There won’t be any marriage and there won’t be any children.

  • DiCaprioIsShit

    Enjoy your pizza, shits. He is clearly at ease and flirting with a 20yrs old. And one he knows since she was ten. And he has no problem telling the world that he is banging her.

    You have been fucking liar and deceiver people since day 1. And you know it. He has his problems for sure but they are amplified even further by the sickly and indecent people he surrounds himself with. AKA hollyweird people. His mother. His friends.

  • DiCaprioIsShit

    How ironic – and sad – to find myself here to think and tell the same things that I have been thinking about him since the beginning about his private life, and writing here since October 5th 2015. Three years after, NOTHING has changed. But it even worsened.

  • DiCaprioIsShit

    And I have even become the TROLL here. OK.
    Pay the damages and in my country. I am out.

  • Annabelle Ashcroft

    Finally! One of the ladies at BZ pg 2665 (some reason I can’t post a link from there onto here) a photo from that restaurant opening Avra where DJ Pookie was playing. That was the same night as the Scorsese/TCM before the club.. and no mention or pics of Camilla at the restaurant either. Thanks to oxford25 at Bellazon!! Everyone thought I was seeing things lol.
