Nephila jurassica by HodariNundu Nephila jurassica by HodariNundu
Nephila jurassica fue una araña bastante grande (15 cms de envergadura) que vivió en el Jurásico en lo que hoy es China.
Así que por supuesto no me pude resistir a dedicarle un garabato malhecho a todo color :D
Aqui está a punto de chuparle los fluídos a un pequeño dinosaurio escansoriopterígido. Las arañas Nephila mas grandes en la actualidad llegan a atrapar pájaros en sus telarañas asi que no es tan disparatado :D
PD- Al parecer, alguien tuvo la misma idea antes que yo y la subió al DA primero! Maldición! XD

Nephila jurassica was a pretty big spider (15 cms legspan) that lived in the Jurassic period in what is today China.
So of course, I couldn´t resist to dedicate a crappy color doodle to it :D
Here it is about to start feeding on a small scansoriopterygid dinosaur. The largest Nephila spiders today have been known to catch birds on their webs, so this isn´t really that far fetched.
PS- Apparently someone had the same idea before me and uploaded it first to DA! Damn! XD

Whoops. It was actually 12 cm.

Now this Carboniferous spider that I'm dreaming of could topple the Mongolarachne, big time.

The largest modern Nephila is nowhere near 1 meter... aren´t you thinking of its web?

Mongolarachne was just as big as the largest Nephila spider, which was a meter long.

Arthrolycosa was teeny. Mongolarachne was a meter long, while Arthrolycosa was only a measly 5 cm, just like the rest of them!

It's just that I've found a lot of different size estimates for it--one source said 6 mm, another said 2 in., and another (here on DA) shows it being over a foot across!

Thanks!

I really don´t know much about Arthrolycosa. Was told by a friend that it was the size of a human hand but then, there are all kinds and sizes of hands XD Its proportions would be different, too, since Arthrolycosa was a completely different kind of spider (Mesothelae).

That thing is big, but not as big as the bugs in the Carboniferous period.
