Cartwheeling Spider Discovered

A new species of spider has been discovered in Morocco, and it’s quite the gymnast. Cebrennus rechenbergi, which lives in the sand desert Erg Chebbi, is the first species of spider documented to project itself across the sand through cartwheel-like motions. The discovery has been published in the journal Zootaxa.

A similar tumbleweed style spider has been previously described, the golden rolling spider, but this spider is restricted in its agility since it is only able to roll down hills. The arachnid acrobat C. rechenbergi in contrast can propel itself off the ground and initiate “flic-flac” jumps that allow it to travel both along flat ground and uphill. Impressively, this bizarre skill allows the spider to move twice as fast as if it were walking, around two meters per second, and uses it as a getaway card when potential predators approach.

This intriguing spider is also quite the architect; it uses its silk threads to build tubular structures in the sand that protect it from the blaring sun and predators.

The Fluorescent Purple Atelopus Frog

Just discovered by scientists in 2006, the psychedelic purple fluorescent frog of the genus Atelopus (also commonly called Purple Harlequin Toad) hails from Central and South America. The discovery occurred during a follow-up survey of the Nassau plateau in Suriname, a country on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America.

The skin of this gorgeous two-tone frog is covered with irregular fluorescent lavender loops, on an eggplant-colored background.

It's like something out of a dream a hippie in the 60s would have.

Tron Frog is cool.

But not as cool as HypnoToad.

New Tyrannosaur Nicknamed "Pinocchio rex" Discovered In China

Meet Qianzhousaurus sinensis, the newly discovered relative of the iconic Tyrannosaurus rex. This smaller, but by no means less terrifying, dinosaur roamed the Earth alongside its T. rex cousin during the Late Cretaceous period approximately 66 million years ago. Its characteristic long snout has earned it the nickname “Pinocchio rex”. The discovery has been described in the journal Nature Communications.
