here's yahoo news video, lots of strange creatures too
here's news
here's picture (maybe)
intersting thing 'bout this marine arachnoid is that most of its organs are in the legs, like the gonads (or the sex thingy)
lots of sci-fi films and novels features spider-like being as the "alien attackers", maybe because of its scary shape and monster like characteristics and mobility. spiders are my personal phobia.

Oh great, yet another thing to blame on Global Warming.

I'm amazed at how graceful their movement is. The fact that such complex organisms can exists in such a cold environment will always boggle my mind.

G'mornin'. Not to split hairs here, but wouldn't a requirement to be an arachnid be to have 8 legs? This creature seems to have 10, or if the pic were a little more wide angle, possibly 12 legs. I believe that would put it in the lobster family.

It is not a spider. It is a scorpion, which is however an underclass of the arachnids. Although most scorpions also have 8 leggs some of them have more.

reply to post by beastamerica

it only has 8 legs ffs...4 feelers, and an extension of the "main body"(if u can call it that...)

its main body looks would be very interesting to find out what the basis for this life for is, whether its carbon or......

there's allways hope
