Video: 'Veggie' spider shuns meat diet


Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A spider that dines almost exclusively on plants has been described by scientists.

It is the first-known predominantly vegetarian spider; all of the other known 40,000 spider species are thought to be mainly carnivorous.

Bagheera kiplingi, which is found in Central America and Mexico, bucks the meat-eating trend by feasting on acacia plants.

The research is published in the journal Current Biology.

The herbivorous spider was filmed on high-definition camera.

I can see them with little signs, protesting in front of spiderwebs, chanting; "Free the flies! Free the flies!"
