Let's say you're a cricket. Enjoying a day full of whatever crickets usually do. The last thing you'd expect is an attack from a Trapdoor Spider! Now, even though this scene is straight out of a horror movie, maybe it would help to know that they're only four centimeters big? Oh, but they do eat small birds, small frogs, fish, and even little snakes. They also probably live near you. Have fun sleeping tonight!
And now we go from one tiny spider to the mighty Sea Spider at Zoo Vienna Schönbrunn. You might have seen crabs this big before, preferably on a plate with some garlic butter and lemon, but this one is a little different. This is the first one of its kind to be bred in captivity. Crustaceans take a lot of attention and care in order to be raised properly, starting off incredibly tiny before molting four times before they become fully grown.
