New Species Spider Named After Greta Thunberg
By Adnan Mahfuz Tazvir
Few people have not heard of climate activist Greta Thunberg. Because climate activist Greta Thunberg has already become a special person in the discussion.
This time a spider’s name is named after her. And, German arachnologist Peter Jagger gave the name.
Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg FRSGS is a Swedish environmental activist.
She is widely known for her struggles and movements against climate change. She made people understand the effects of climate change by becoming an anti-climate change resistance. She earns the title, “person of the year” from “Time Magazine”.
The Huntsman spider species discovered in Madagascar is named Thunberg Jane.nov.
The German arachnologist Peter Jagger named it.
Peter said Greta’s thoughts and movement on climate change had praised him. So he named the spider after Greta Thunberg as an honour of her activity. He says global warming is affecting all aspects of nature. Many species of spiders of Madagascar are also included in the list.
It is known that Peter took part in various protests at the school of Thunberg. He spoke about this new species of spider in a journal called Jutaxa.
The Thunberg spider is quite different from other Huntsman species of spiders mentioned there. They have black dots on the back of their eyes and bodies.
Peter has been discovering various species of spiders for almost 20 years. This is his profession and addiction.
Peter named Thunberg to show how much Madagascar’s biodiversity is affected and in the face of extinction. Even spiders of this species do not weave nets. They hunt for food.
