Why Net-Casting Spiders Have Such Enormous Eyes

Why Net-Casting Spiders Have Such Enormous Eyes

Uncategorized
The net-casting spider has eight eyes. But two of those peepers the spider's secondary eyes are particularly enormous, and scientists had never been able to explain exactly why they came to be. According to a new study publishedin Biology Letters, the reason is that those amazing eyes help the creature hunt not only prey that flies, but also prey that crawls. The spider is a lethal predator that spins a web that looks like a net. When prey arrives, the arachnid strikes within a thousandth of a second, stretching the net to ensnare its victim. A team led by Jay Stafstrom from the University of Nebraska-Lincolncamped in Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park in Florida for months to watch the net-casting spider in action and test the power of its vision. The team made a spider ...

Study Reveals Bizarre Deep-Sea Hunting Methods of Humpback Whales

Uncategorized
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) predominantly dine on krill and small fish that travel in schools. They are able to catch their prey in a variety of ways, including stunning them with slaps from their powerful fins or blowing bubbles to concentrate them into a small area. While it has been well-known that whales can cooperate for hunting purposes, it was not well-understood how each individual whale was able to contribute to the process. Another aspect of humpback hunting that has not been well-understood by scientists is how they hunt in deep waters as a group, where the light is minimal. A new study has revealed that groups of humpback whales hunt in dark waters using vocalizations and other acoustic clues to locate their prey. The research was led by Susa...
Dragonflies Can Predict Their Prey’s Next Move

Dragonflies Can Predict Their Prey’s Next Move

Uncategorized
Swift and methodical, dragonflies can track the position of a tasty fly and steer itself strategically towards it—swooping in and snatching a meal in half a second. Researchers studying this predator’s acrobatic fly-catching maneuvers have discovered that dragonflies make meticulous internal calculations about the movements of its prey and its own body. The findings, published in Nature this week, are the first to show that insects have the same type of complex control—prediction and reaction —used by humans to seize moving objects.  You might not be aware of it, but every time you reach out for your mug, a series of sophisticated information processing has to happen. “You have an internal model of how your arm works, how the joints are articulated, of the cup and it
