New snail species, sensitive to temperature, named in honor of Greta Thunberg

an international group of scientists found in the Brunei forest land mollusks mollusks previously unknown species that lived at the foot of the slope. Due to the sensitivity of snails to the temperature of the air they decided to call Craspedotropis gretathunbergae in honor of the Swedish Schoolgirls Greta Thunberg. Experts note that ecoactivity was informed about the plans of zoologists and didn’t mind them.

Greta Thunberg — the girl 2003 year of birth. In 2018, at the age of 15 years she started to protest near the Swedish Parliament with a banner “School strike for the climate”, and subsequently this inspired the global campaign, also known as “Friday for the future” more attention to ecoactivists was confined after she spoke at the UN climate summit in new York.

This is at least the second species, named after the Swedish ecoactivity: in the autumn of last year employees of the London natural history Museum gave them an open mind beetle’s name Nelloptodes gretae. These insects have pale yellow or Golden color, have no wings, and sweep the eyes are small holes. Length of adult individuals is only 0.79 mm, which makes this beetle one of the smallest among known.
