Seven new spiders found in Brazil
January 11, 2018
Some of your favourite, or least favourite, literary characters will now be part of history forever. Scientists have found seven new species of spiders in the caves across the state of Pará in northern Brazil. The fun part is, they have been named after fictional characters from popular novels. Varys from Game of Thrones. Shelob from Lord of the Rings. And, of course, Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web.
