If you're anything like me you have an immense fear of creepy crawlies, especially spiders.
That said, I cant help but be amazed at their super abilities. Especially the fact these little critters have some seriously cool peepers.
Take the eyes of a jumping spider. They are built like Galilean telescopes. These telescopes, which Galileo started using in 1609, are basically tubes with a lens at each end. Only three groups of animals have similar eyes: falcons, chameleons, and jumping spiders.
Scientists have even carries out research which has calculated that some spiders can even see the moon!
What is also fascinating is that they can see laser pointers. Especially green ones!
Check out this cool video here.
So there you go. If you don't have a cat or dog to play with, check for spiders!
And this could be a great tool for the arachnophobic that share their space with jumping spiders ... just take the laser pointer and show your eight-legged guests the exit.
