    Hey spider folks! Wanted to tell everyone about this spider! It is a small ant sized jumping spider ( looks a lot like an ant) called Roxie’s magnus, and scientists have discovered they not only care for their young, but they actually secrete breast milk from their thorax to feed their spiderlings! Even after they are large enough to hunt on their own! How weird is that! Google it for
    More information and great pics!
