Hunshiyarer, Professor. Professor Hunshiyarer was created by the Indian author Sukumar Ray and appeared in Heshoram Hunshiyarer Diary (1922).

Professor Hunshiyarer is an explorer and scientist modeled on Arthur Conan Doyle's Professor Challenger, as Heshoram Hunshiyarer Diary is influenced by Doyle’s The Lost World. While climbing across the Bandakush Mountains Professor Hunshiyarer discovers a series of bizarre animals, including the foul-tempered gomratharium and the screaming reptile-fish chillanosaurus.
