Hawaii doesn’t have snakes native to the islands, but…
Hawaii has this tiny – 4mm spider living on the undersides of leaves that comes out at night to hunt for food.
The cool thing is that it’s backend has a smiley face on it. Color and exact markings vary.
Species: T. grallator
Binomial name: Theridion grallator
Discovered by Simon, 1900
Kind of funny how scientists are so brazen about saying they discovered a species… as if nobody knew about it before. All the Hawaiians never saw this spider before, right? It took Simon to say it existed.
Like Captain Cook discovering Hawaii. How ridiculous… Wiki.answers.com when answering the question – Who Discovered Hawaii? Says…
“Apart from the Hawaiians, the person who ‘discovered’ Hawaii was Capt James Cook.”
Apart from the Hawaiians? How can you SAY THAT? It’s like me saying, “Apart from the Hawaiians, Cpt James Cook, and the millions of people that visit there every year, the person that ‘discovered’ Hawaii was blogger, Vern Lovic in 1984.”
Like Columbus discovering America, right?
When are our history books going to be rewritten with some TRUTH to them?
