Hi all,

recently I had to (again) read to my little son from its favourite book “Dinosaurs of the World” (or something like that).

They mentioned two species (found in Australia), where I thought at first “this must have been a fake”

[ul]
[li]One is Atlascopcosaurus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlascopcosaurus) named after Atlas Copco[/li][li]The other one was Quantassaurus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantassaurus), named after the australian airline Quantas[/li][/ul]

Do you know other animals that were named by sponsors?

Have fun,
Michael
