The main topic of the article was of course the latest discovery of our arachnology team, Eriovixia gryffindori, that caused a global media sensation thanks to the name! However, the writer, Divya Vijayakumar, also wanted to cover my other (and earlier) areas of work besides arachnology: the INDog Project and wildlife conservation. She did a wonderful job describing what the INDog Project is all about. And she asked to use a picture of Kiba, Kimaya and me on Nagaon beach; so the K Gang also got their share of glory 😀
The photo was taken by Javed Ahmed, the brilliant lead researcher of our arachnology team, who is also part of the INDog Project.
I'm posting a few screen shots of the article, and the links to it in both magazines.
