Sea Spiders

Sorry, arachnophobes. Spiders exist even in the deepest parts of the ocean. Though they typically measure just a centimeter or less, Pycnogonids in the deep sea grow much bigger by literally sucking the juices out of jellyfish and sea anemones with their straw-like mouths. Fun fact: Their bodies are so small that parts of their digestive tract extend into their legs.

Ugh. Can't avoid spiders.

I didn't know there were sea spiders. Well until now. No you can't escape spiders. Bugger.

Have a fabulous day. ♥

Yes, i know i’m odd, being an arachnophile. The idea of sea spiders appeals to me.

Messymimi: OK. I don't mind sea spiders because, frankly, I'm never going to find one in my garage, i.e., spider grand central station. In my science studies, my brain knows full well the beneficial role spiders play in the Earth's ecosystem, but my chicken self doesn't appreciate them and doesn't want them anywhere near me.
