I was in Sydney this morning and picked up a free paper called The Epoch Times and found this write up to be of great interest.
The write up is about an ancient Huntsman spider preserved in opaque amber and has been unveiled using new computer-imaging technology with the
findings published online in the latest issue of the journal Naturwissenschaften.
The remains of the almost 50-million-year-old spider are approximately 2 millimeters wide by 2.5 millimeters high, and belong to the oldest known
huntsman spider on record.
Take a look at the 3D footage by clicking below, the piece of film only lasts for 2 minutes, but well worth a look.
