Cave Spider, Robber Spider, Cave Robber, Oregon Cave, Cave Explorers, Southern Oregon, Trogloraptor Marchingtoni
Giant-Clawed Spider Is a 'Cave Robber.' The newly discovered Trogloraptor, or "cave robber" spider is so unusual it belongs to an entirely new lineage. The creepy-crawly derives its name from both its home home habitat and remarkable claws!
ANOTHER KIND!! WHHHYYYY!!!! An entirely new family of spider has been discovered in the caves of southern Oregon, the first in the US since 1890. It is thought that the 3-inch "Cave Robber" spider hangs by a thread from the cave ceiling, using its unique hooked feet to snatch flying insects out of the air.

The Cave Robber spider (Trogloraptor marchingtoni), a specimen of a new taxonomic family of spiders, has unique hooks/claws on its legs. Amateur cave explorers discovered the spider in 2010 in a cave outside Grants Pass, Oregon. Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew!! I HATE spiders!!
WASHINGTON: A team of amateur cave explorers and arachnologists has found a new family of spiders in Oregon caves and old-growth redwood forests, US researchers said Friday. Entomologists at the California Academy of Sciences said the spider, named Trogloaptor -- or "cave robber" -- for its lethal front claws, had such unique evolutionary features that it represented not just a new genus or species, but also a new family of spiders.
This undated photo from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, Calif., shows a specimen of a new family of spiders, which scientists are calling Cave Robber (Trogloraptor marchingtoni ) for its fearsome claws. Amateur cave explorers found the spider in 2010 in a cave outside Grants Pass, Ore., and sent specimens to the California Academy of Sciences, where scientists decided it was so evolutionarily different that they had to create a whole new family to put it in !
"An entirely new family of spider has been discovered in the caves of southern Oregon, the first in the US since 1890. It is thought that the 3-inch "Cave Robber" spider hangs by a thread from the cave ceiling, using its unique hooked feet to snatch flying insects out of the air." I think the over excitement hurt the scientist's brain. How could a spider snatch insects from the air? That seems way too difficult. Can it even see them flying by? Really, I think those hooks are for climbing.
