    How many of you have seen this yet. I have not researched them at all yet, but they seem cool. What does everyone else think of them?

    Yeah I literally just watched a youtube video of this spiders strange behavior.. the video claims they can be found Peru... but I agree 100% on being skeptical.. because the video I watched seemed sketchy.. I also seen another story that seemed fake.. a story of a chinese farmer supposidly finding a unique also thought to be extinct (that entire phrase to me is a red flag) type of jumping spider and on its rump was some strange designs.. it looked super fake

    national geographic has more credibility. I would be willing to believe an article from natgeo with little to no skepticisms.
