Turtles all the Way Down

Gurdur has a rather whimsical piece on why Harry Potter's dragon is not a real new species (it's a young version of another dinosaur) while the prehistoric turtle named after the author of the DiscWorld Novels is a kosher species.

Everybody knew that Psephophorus terrypratchetti was the real thing when they dug it up, of course. Not least because of the four specimens of Elephas Maximus Giganticus that were excavated above it.
