St. Greta Has A Tiny, Highly Sensitive Snail Named After Her

I wonder if the snail also tells all the other snails what to do to comply with the first snails beliefs

Video: Tiny, Highly Sensitive Snail Species Named After Greta Thunberg

A diminutive brown snail species has been named after Greta Thunberg, with researchers saying they named the mollusc for the Swedish climate worrier because her generation “will be responsible for fixing problems they did not create.”

The new species – Craspedotropis gretathunberga – is approximately one inch long and half an inch wide with grey tentacles and a concave shell. It is found in the mountainous foothills of Borneo.

“The newly described snail belongs to the so-called caenogastropods, a group of land snails known to be sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation,” says snail expert Dr Menno Schilthuizen.

“All individuals were found very close to the research field station at the foot of a steep hill-slope, next to a river bank, while foraging at night on the green leaves of understorey plants.”

Thunberg told the group she was “delighted” that the snail had been named after her, researchers said. (snip)

Last year, a beetle was named after her by the UK’s Natural History Museum , as Breitbart News reported.

Definitely not a cult.
