Obamadon is an extinct genus of lizard that lived during the Late Cretaceous. Obamadon was named after the 44th president of the United States of America. The name 'Obama tooth' referring to the presidents smile. The animal is proposed to be an insectivore that lived in Wyoming and Montana. The fossils were assigned to the genus Leptochamops but after study were distinguished and named. Obamadons teeth were similar to other lizards that ate insects, and Obamadon is presumed an insectivore.
