I have never seen anything that looks even remotely related to number 7. What the hell is that? That's not just a new species; it's a new friggin' order or something.

So these 8, small pictures are the best out of the hundreds of high-res images they took?

I want more.

Where are spiders? Where?

Was this slideshow intentionally missing any sort of descriptive label? Genus? Species? Common name?

Prof. Ann Marion: Was this slideshow intentionally missing any sort of descriptive label? Genus? Species? Common name?

Yeah, it's almost as if these things have never been seen before by any human, much less a human scientist that will classify it and name it.

this thread died because of the terrible link.

here is the real link. i finally found it. now you, too can see the plate-sized "spiders" referenced in the headline. also, they are lobsters not spiders.

4x the photos, each goes to high-res download.


now the creepy purple thing with the glowing red eyes can be your background image.
