Scientists in India have discovered a new species of spiders that are similar to the "Hat" of the famous movie "Harry Potter". A triangular creature resembles a "Hat" from Hogwarts, which is used to embed young wizards and witches in the appropriate "home".
The spider was named Eriovixia gryffindori, in the sign of Gryffindors that Harry Potter was sorted in my first day as a student at Hogwarts. "This is a unique form spider got its name from the fabulous, magical artifact, a Hat belonging to a medieval wizard Godric Gryffindor, one of the four founders of Hogwarts ..." said the Indian magazine "Arachnology".
In response to the naming of the spider, the writer J. K. Rowling who wrote the books about Harry Potter tweeted: "It's truly an honor"!
The magazine describes Eriovixia gryffindori as "a small, mysterious, night spider, which finds refuge and buries itself in the foliage, in the daytime." Mark Elgar, Professor of evolutionary biology at the University of school of Melbourne, described the spider as "about half the length of the nail on your little finger." In the daytime, it is masked on a green background. The authors of the article in the journal saying that the spider was named in honor of the "Hat" from the film to draw attention to the secret life of invertebrates.
