Gagamba na Nagpapanggap na Dahon
(Pang-masa) - January 13, 2017 - 12:00am

Inakala ng archeologist na si Matjaz Kuntner na isang simpleng hike lang ang kanyang masasaksihan sa Yunnan rain forest ng China.

Ginabi si Matjaz kaya kinailangan na niyan gumamit ng headlamp.

Sa kalagitnaan ng kanyang paglalakad ay may kakaibang sapot ng gagamba siyang nakita sa mga dahon. Nang lapitan niya ito ay la­king gulat niya na hindi pala dahon ang kanyang nakita kundi isang gagam­ba na nagpapanggap na dahon.

Sabi pa ni Matjaz, kung may sapot ay tiyak na may gagamba pero kakaibang klase ng gagamba ang kanyang nasaksihan.

Kasalukuyan pa ring pinag-aaralan ng mga researcher ang nasabing gagamba dahil kadidiskubre lamang nito.

Hindi sila sigurado kung bakit ginagaya nito ang hitsura ng isang dahon pero sa kanilang palagay, ay para maprotektahan nila ang sarili sa mga predators at makapagtago sa mga target nilang kainin.
