New snake species named after Harry Potter character

Researches in India have found brand new species of snake.

The new snake is a bright green pit viper which has been given a special name.

The new species has been named after ‘Trimeresurus Salazar’, the founder of the most-feared house in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – Slytherin.

In the world of Harry Potter, Salazar Slytherin was famous for being able to speak to snakes and for practicing the Dark Arts.

Snakes are closely associated with this Hogwarts house and even appear on the emblem for the house.
