Just when the world is just bothered with Putin and a missing plane it seems nothing can get worse, until armored spiders are discovered, arghh!!!



Oh wait they are less than 1 mm and live in caverns over china, still something else to occupy our mind instead of WWIII and MH370.


Armored spiders (Tetrablenmidae) are medium to small arachnid species that derive its name from the complex pattern of covering they have on their abdomen, which is very similar to body armor. These tropical and subtropical spiders are mainly found in soil and leaf litter but the new species were seen inhabiting caves. The cave species has no eyes.

Two of the new species belonging to the genus Tetrablemma have only 4 legs that distinguish them easily from the rest.


Ummm 4 legged and no eyes spiders, i though spiders always had 8 legs and it was a defining characteristic of the class, learning new things everyday, now they will say there are herbivorous spiders ha ha ha (Bagheera kiplingi
)

NUKE IT!



Seriously though, if that thing were like a foot long, I would need a change of pants after my encounter with it.

It would take a man with mightier testes than me to go "fishing" for these.

Nuking spiders is ,in fact, the only use for nuclear arsenals anymore.

It didn't say it only had four legs, it said "...have only 4 legs that distinguish them easily from the rest." .. so there are four legs that are distinguishably different from another similar species.. at least that's how it read to me.
