100-Million-Year-Old Ancient Spider With A Tail

NOPE.

via Lost At E Minor

Scientists have just discovered a tiny arachnid frozen in amber. It looks exactly like a spider but with one major difference: a whip-like tail.

The creature has been dated back to 100 million years ago, and according to Paul Selden, an arachnid expert from the University of Kansas, the fossil may be “the missing link from older animals and modern spiders.”

Still NOPE, but feel free to read more anyway because this is really interesting.
