People Think This Spider Looks Like the Sorting Hat

So, there’s this spider from India…and as much as I’m cringing – I have to tell you. Ron Weasley would be squealing with disgust right now. There’s a tiny brown spider that was recently discovered and named in India and get this – it looks just like the Sorting Hat from the Harry Potter series.

According to Time, “The tiny brown arachnid, which scientific researchers Javed Ahmed, Sumukha J. N. and Rajashree Khalap have named “Eriovixia gryffindori,” was spotted in the land of the Western Ghats mountain range in Karnataka, in southwestern India.”
