The magical world was given a treat on Wednesday when J.K. Rowling answered a fan's query about her Patronus.
So what, pray tell, is this fantastic beast, and where can one find it?
Only the cutest lil' woodland fox-cat-squirrel thing you ever did see.
One of "Britain's rarest mammals," the sighting of such an elusive creature is cause for celebration thereabouts.
Although luckily, there are greater numbers in Scotland and Ireland.
It even has its own meme.
And fans of the trilogy His Dark Materials might remember that the protagonist, Lyra, has a daemon* who takes the pine marten as his form.
So: well-chosen, J.K.
Thanks for bringing the pine marten some of the love and attention it deserves!
