Hello Gemmies! This is some fun news that mixes my literary and animal loves. A species of green pit viper recently discovered in India was named after Harry Potter character, Salazar Slytherin! As all of my Potter fans know Salazar Slytherin is one of the founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the head of Slytherin House. Salazar was famous for being able to talk to snakes. As such, the Slytherin House symbol is a snake and their colors are green and grey which makes this news even more perfect! Bravo scientists!
The entire Harry Potter collection by J.K. Rowling is available for purchase from all major booksellers. Let me know what you think about this news by leaving a comment below.
