'Unicorn' Tarantula Wears a Weird Horn on Its Back

https://www.livescience.com/64760-tarantula-horn-angola.html



A species of tarantula that was recently discovered in Angola has something in common with the mythical unicorn — a prominent "horn." But in the spider's case, the horn is growing from the creature's back.

The unusual arachnid belongs to a tarantula group known as horned baboon spiders. But in all other known species in this group, the "horn" is short and hardened. In the new species, however, the structure is elongated and soft, researchers wrote in a new study.

They collected eight individuals of the newfound species — now named Ceratogyrus attonitifer from woodland habitats,during surveys conducted in southeastern Angola in 2015 and 2016. Its species name is derived from the Latin root "attonit," which means "astonishment," reflecting how surprised the scientists were to discover the remarkable arachnid, the study authors reported. [Creepy, Crawly & Incredible: Photos of Spiders]

Dense fur made of short, black hairs covers much of the tarantulas' bodies, which measure 1.3 inches (34 millimeters) long, on average. The long, floppy horns extending over the spiders' backs are in some cases longer than their carapaces (the back portion of their bodies), the scientists wrote. While the base of the horn is hard, the rest is soft and "bag-like" in the living spiders; in preserved specimens, it shrivels up and turns darker.

The horn is both astonishing and mysterious, as scientists have yet to learn what the spiders use it for, according to the study.

These tarantulas live in burrows that they dig among grassy tufts or in open sand; the tunnels descend vertically about 16 inches (40 centimeters) and terminate in a horizontal chamber. The spiders are very protective of their homes, "enthusiastically" attacking objects that the researchers inserted into the tunnels, according to the study.
Does someone need a hug?

To recap:

Spider in CX-5: Sell or burn the Mazda
Cute spiders: no such thing - creepy hell spawn. All of them.

People have since taken to the comments to share their own fear of spiders and to make jokes about the accident.

“For safety measures should probably burn the car too. Just to make sure it’s really dead,”

Peacock Spider is believed to hypnotize its victims before its brutal attack.

Police: Man sees spider while driving his Cadillac, crashes into bus shelter

https://www.abc15.com/news/national/...to-bus-shelter

A Sandusky, Ohio, man was taken to a hospital Wednesday after crashing a car into a bus shelter when he spotted a spider in his car.

The 21-year-old man was driving a 2003 Cadillac CTS when he saw the bug, hit a curb and drove through a bus stop shelter on the side of the road, Sandusky police said. The man reentered the road and stopped shortly thereafter.

The man was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center with minor injuries, authorities said. It's not known if the spider sustained any injuries. Knowing spiders, probably not.

The man was cited for failure to control, according to police.

They should put combustible barrels on the roadside so people who need to self-immolate for the good of society can do so conveniently.
