Video taken by Dr

Video taken by Dr. Kal Ivanov (Curator of Recent Invertebrate Zoology at the VMNH). Sun spiders don't live in Virginia, but are sometimes found out here in Wyoming. They are voracious predators which are seldom seen due to their nocturnal habits. The one shown here is trying to escape our curiosity by burying itself under dry cow dung. #VMNHDinoDig #AntsandFossils
