Giant Sea Spiders

Giant Sea Spiders

The Giant Sea Spider was one of the most recently discovered species of creatures found in southern Antartica. It was found in early 2008. This arachnid is about 9.8 inches long and preys on hydroids and bryzoans. Researchers hypothesize that the lack of predators, cold temperatures, and high levels of oxygen in their natural habitat are responsible the giant sea spider’s colossal size.

Giant Sea Spiders,12" long, recently discovered in Antarctica more than 6,000' deep. Researchers reported “Gigantism is common in Antarctic waters – we have collected huge worms, giant crustaceans and sea spiders the size of dinner plates.” Findings included fish with unusually large eyes – very unusual for such a deep environment.  All the specimens have been sent to labs for research and needless to say, we are all anxiously awaiting the results!
