A Rare Hopper

We Americans, patriotic to the core, have a habit of naming states, cities and even buildings after famous or influential people. Just look at George Washington. There’s Washington, D.C., Washington County, Washington state, even George Washington University. Not even the founding father of our country ever had an insect named after him. After all, that honor is reserved for a select few.

Buddy Ingram may not be famous to everyone, but his name will always live in science thanks to a surprising find right in our own backyard. Wild Side Guide Alan Griggs shows us how the cooperation between two modern day explorers led to the discovery of an entirely new insect species. From show 2405.
