A team of arachnologists have made a creepy and crawly discovery. Over 50 new species of spiders in Cape York, Australia. Dr. Robert Raven is on the team.

One spider can dive into water. It is a big tarantula about the size of a human face. This spider is also capable of diving into the water.

Another spider type discovered is the peacock spider. This one has a fold around their body which extends out and forms like a peacock. They're about the size of two sugar grains stuck together.
