There is a tribe that does not contact with civilization at all

There is a tribe that does not contact with civilization at all

It turns out that there is a tribe in the world that does not contact with civilization at all. No way. But because he does not.

These people live on the island of North Sentinel (North Sentinel), which belongs to the Andaman archipelago. About them, almost nothing is known – except that they all saw us in the coffin. (And some, who were too intrusive, were sent there).

The island was discovered by Europeans long ago, back in the eighteenth century, and if not colonized, it was only because it had no interest in the sense of gain, and besides everything is surrounded by reefs – neither swim nor stick.

In the nineteenth century, the ships crashed on the rocks several times. The crews tried to land on the shore, but the natives met them with arrows. Someone finished it off.

They are very short, naked, curly people with reddish noses. They talk in a language that is not at all like other Andaman languages, which means that they live in isolation from time immemorial.

Once, in 1897, the police landed on the island, chasing a runaway convict. I found him all with arrows, with a cut throat, and quickly got out.

Now the island belongs formally to India. Several times anthropologists tried to come into contact with the Sentinelites: they brought gifts, showed all kindness.

The natives invariably went into the forest. From outsiders did not want to take anything.

In 1991, an Indian scientist seemed to suddenly find the way to the heart of impregnable Aborigines. The magic key was the multi-colored plastic buckets.

For six years it was possible to maintain a very cautious, very monotonous contact. Sometimes the Sentinelites behaved peacefully-that is, they took buckets. Sometimes they threatened with their spears and showed their asses. But close so never came.

And then communication stopped altogether.

The natives began to shoot at the helicopters from the bows.

In 2006, two fishermen were killed, whose boat was carried by a current to the island.

God knows what the savages have found. Maybe they just decided that they already had enough colored buckets.

Since the times are now politically correct, the islanders were left alone, even for the murders they did not punish. Let them live as they want.

Here they live. We do not even know how many of them.

What the Earth looks like at a distance of 6 billion km

What the Earth looks like at a distance of 6 billion km

What the Earth looks like at a distance of 6 billion km

28 years ago, the space probe Voyager 1, approaching the boundaries of the solar system, photographed our planet. On the resulting image, the Earth appears as a tiny light point of 0.12 pixels in size. It can be found on the right side of the frame, in an orange strip (the colored bars in the picture are interference caused by the sun’s rays).

Background to the snapshot

Voyager 1 was launched in 1977. His task was to collect information about Jupiter and Saturn: their composition, mass, density of the atmosphere and so on.

After the device completed the main mission, its creators from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA division) sent the probe to the far reaches of the solar system.

On February 14, 1990, being 6 billion km from his native planet, Voyager threw a “farewell glance” at her. The image transferred to them was called Pale Blue Dot (English Pale Blue dot). The idea to photograph the Earth from such an angle was suggested by astrophysicist Carl Sagan.

“Look again at this point. It’s here. This is our house. This is us. Everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you’ve ever heard of, all the people that ever existed lived their lives on it – in a mote suspended in the sunlight, “Carl Sagan wrote.

On that day, the probe also captured other planets of our star system: Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. A series of 60 pictures was called “Family Portrait”.

In August 2012, Voyager 1 became the first man-made object to leave the solar system. Now the probe is located 20 billion km from the Earth and is directed to the constellation of the Giraffe. On its board is a message to alien civilizations: a gold-plated phonograph record with the sounds of our planet, on the back of which the coordinates of the Earth are indicated. In the development of the tablet took part all the same Carl Sagan. Listen to the recordings from this record here.

In the island diving club not simple guides work, but marine biologists: each of them accompanies a group of up to 5 people and is ready to answer any question of curious guests of the resort.

Crocodiles were allowed to listen to Bach in the MRI scanner

This was a technical breakthrough.

Researchers gave to listen to classical music Nile crocodiles in the scanner MRI in an attempt to learn more about the brain of dinosaurs. Scientists have launched one-year-old animals in an MRI scanner. While the crocodiles were walking around the apparatus, they switched on Bach and measured brain activity. It was found that when these reptiles hear complex stimuli, then they activate additional zones in the brain. It turned out that the brains of crocodiles react to music in much the same way as the brains of birds and mammals. It was unexpected, because the birds themselves are singing, it would seem, their brain must be different. And from crocodiles, no one expected such musicality, reports the Daily Mail. Conducting this study was not easy, because even small crocodiles reach a meter in length and can cause damage to the tails and jaws. And they could not be put to sleep, as it would not have allowed to investigate the activity of the brain. Fortunately, the reptiles remained very calm.

Crocodiles were allowed to listen to Bach in the MRI scanner

“Crocodile brain research provides a deep understanding of the evolution of the nervous system in vertebrates and can help us determine at what time different brain structures and behaviors they were responsible for were formed,” said researcher Felix Streckens. Also, scientists call this a technical breakthrough, which showed that it is possible to scan reptiles, not just mammals. Crocodiles are the link between dinosaurs and all kinds of birds. For hundreds of millions of years they have not changed much. “My Planet” wrote that crocodiles, in fact, are playful creatures.

10 ways to save on a trip to Australia. Circuit lighting Mirvmeste

For 27 days in Australia, we spent $ 1100 for two without visas and tickets. This is very much for our budget. But not so much for a dream.

There is a link to the video, but there are more secrets in the text.

For how many of you have you always visited Australia as your cherished dream? For me it was exactly. About 7 years ago I even bought a guidebook, which remained standing on the shelf unused. Now that we WERE in Australia, I can confidently say it is worth it. It is worth dreaming about it for half a lifetime, and it’s worth it to go there once in a lifetime.

So what stops you? Oh, well, of course … everything is very expensive in Australia. It’s true. So forget about it and go to Turkey …

Of course not! Just find ways to make it cheaper. We lived in Australia for 27 days and during this time have accumulated lifhaks on this account. I’m sure there are more of them. Maybe even our new Australian friends will add something here in the comments 🙂

All prices in Australian dollars (A $), at that time – 49 rubles.

So:

1. Do not believe Skyscanner and Aviasales.

Use, but do not believe. With their help, collect the flight with transfers by hand. Look for flights to via Singapore or Hong Kong, or Beijing, or Manila. Check where it is cheaper to fly from the main Australian cities, and already there look for flights from home. We flew to the Gold Coast from Kuala Lumpur with a landing in Singapore (where also walked for 2 days) for $ 100. And I bought tickets 2 days before the flight.

2. Find couchsurfers and friends in advance

We do not live in hotels. You can, of course, but it’s $ 100 per night … And it’s boring. You will not understand anything about Australia if you live in hotels. You need local!

Our favorite couchsurfing.com in Australia is working. But not in Sydney and not in Melbourne. There are too many tourists there. In other cities – please! But better in advance, it’s still not India or Iran, hungry for tourists. And in Sydney and Melbourne? And there exactly live your Russian friends! Or familiar acquaintances. Or distant relatives. Just tell everyone around you that you are going to Australia – they will immediately be found. Also will be glad to you! Anyway, they all miss their homeland, and rarely any of their friends get to them.

3. Drive over the campers

Our favorite. In Australia you can not sit in cities. All the most interesting – on endless kilometers of coast, in parks, in reserves. In Australia, you need to constantly move. And how do you still save on living and eating? Correctly! We need to go to the house on wheels, especially since in Australia for them an ideal infrastructure with special parking and free camping is built. This pleasure is not cheap. From A $ 100 per day (this is, for example, www.jucy.com.au) plus gasoline. Although A $ 100 per day is the price of an average hotel room, but here you also go …

But, of course, we will not advise paying A $ 100 per day for a camper! Take it for free!

Many companies offer to rent a camper in one direction, and someone should return it. You, for example!

The conditions are simple – pay A $ 1-3 per day and for 3-5 days you move a fully equipped camper (with utensils and, if lucky, even with bed linen) from city A to city B. There is a kilometer restriction, but usually it’s 1 , 5 times more than necessary, so you can stop by in interesting places. And you will have a time limit. This restriction can not be violated in any way! But, if everything is planned, then too, with a reserve.

What is most pleasant – part of the cost of gasoline is returned (A $ 50-250 depending on the distance) upon presentation of the check at the end. This is always indicated in the ad.

You, of course, will be offered additional insurance, chairs, navigators and payment of toll roads, which can significantly increase the cost. We refused everything, realizing that in case of an accident, we are fully responsible, and a deposit of $ 1000 will not be returned. So the option without insurance is suitable for those who are confident in the high professionalism of their driver. At us, just, such!

Underwater rocks:

1) You can not be late. If you are late – you do not get the cost of gasoline (this is a minimum A $ 100 loss), take a penalty for being late A $ 50-70. Plus, if you do not have time by the end of the working day (which is likely, since the return time is usually close to the end of the day), you will also be charged extra for an additional day – another A $ 50-70.

The first time, of course, we were late … Stuck in traffic at the entrance to Sydney. And of course, they were already closed by the time we arrived at the office. The next day the fee was not taken from us, since I tearfully asked the girl about it on the phone in advance. But that’s all we managed to achieve … A $ 150, we just lost … Well, now we know …

2) You can not call on toll roads, if the contract says that you can not stop on toll roads, and you did not pay in advance for it A $ 30.

We did not want to stop by. Honestly did not want. Google perfectly routes routes to detour toll roads. But by chance in Sydney we went not on that strip … There’s no man in the booth. There’s no one to explain that you did not want to. There simply is a camera that takes pictures and sends out an invoice to the company. Two accounts. $ 4 for the toll road and another A $ 75 !!! for the fact that this commercial car drove to the toll road without prior permission … do not do so …

3) Follow the kilometer. In principle, the surcharge for extra miles is less than a dollar per kilometer, but it’s better to keep within what is given for free. It’s always real.

4) The fuel tank at the time of return must be complete (otherwise they will take a double price for each missing liter of gasoline). But about the gas cylinder and tanks for dirty water and sewer need to clarify in advance – depends on the company. Clarify this when you take a camper, and plan a time to find a gas or a place to drain the sewage – usually all this is in paid campsites and you can use it for free.

As you know, we tried all the pitfalls on ourselves once, except the gas tank, but there were also on the edge. But this does not mean that you do not need to take campers. Just tell yourself right away that Australia is not Russia. Here everything must be done as written in the contract. To the nearest minute!

It’s easy to find campers for distillation – you can simply google “$ 1 relocation deal”, but here are a couple of sites that we used:

· Www.transfercar.com.au (the biggest base, but the aggregator, confirmations can wait up to 24 hours, it’s better to book in advance)

· Www.apollocamper.com (not an intermediary, they have their own campers, so they confirm instantly, but they can return a deposit and fines for delaying them for a month beforehand)

· Www.immova.com (aggregator, then take a $ 25 commission, but suddenly something unique will be found).

It is best to look on Monday afternoon. At this time, lay out new proposals, and most of all. By the end of the week, there is almost nothing. There is always something from Sydney, there are almost always distances from Melbourne. The rest of the points need to look at the dates.

And by the way, such a thing is not only in Australia. In New Zealand, in America and in Europe, it also works. That’s only campers in America are so voracious (up to 30 liters per 100 km) that this puts the financial effectiveness of history in doubt.

4. Hitch-hike

Strictly speaking, in Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and Northern Territory (exactly where you will travel), hitchhiking is prohibited. That is, not hitch-hiking itself is forbidden, but it is forbidden to catch cars while standing on the roadside. Plus, often on the tracks hang signs, such as “the entry for pedestrians is forbidden.” Accordingly, it is better to hitchhike at the exit from the cities – at stops, refuellings or any other parts of the road, not called the curb. In practice, passing police cars saw us standing on the road and did not react at all. Cases of hitchhiking are rare and usually are limited to a warning.

In general, the Australian hitchhiking is fine (even for those who did it for the first time in life) and, since the distances between large cities are very large, it is easy to travel 300-500 km on one car. It was in these machines that we got to know the real indigenous Australian aborigines, Australian pensioners and beautiful Australian intellectuals, with whom they agreed to change the world for the better.

Well, if you, after all, are not so reckless and prefer to rent a car – park for the night only for free Rest Area. Look for them in the attachment www.wikicamps.com.au. The first 10 days of the application is free.

5. Forget about eating in cafes and restaurants

It’s impossible. Especially after Asia and the prices of street food … Well, how else, if the minimum official salary in Australia – A $ 17.7. This salary is paid to everyone – from waiters to cleaners. And therefore the service sector can not be cheap. The most affordable option, which we managed to find – A $ 10 per person. This is a hamburger with potatoes in McDonald’s, for example. And in Australia, prices in cafes are almost unrelated to the location and status of the restaurant. They are almost the same everywhere. Fast food is cheaper, the restaurant is more expensive. It did not fit into our budget at all. Buy products in supermarkets. The cheapest is Aldi, but we liked Tesco more – there always (especially in the evenings) there are products with yellow discount prices. Even if you have nowhere to cook, Tesco sells an excellent whole grilled chicken for $ 10 and a Greek salad for $ 5, and another – see the next paragraph …

6. Roast the meat on the street

In parks, in parking lots, not even playgrounds in yards – everywhere there are barbecues. There are tables and benches for a picnic. Even if you have nowhere to cook and you do not have a home with a kitchen, buy ready-made meat in a marinade in any supermarket and foil and grill kebabs or steaks as much as you like.

7. Drink tap water

Tap water in Australia (except when specifically indicated that it is not) is drinking. Take a bottle with you and fill it at any gas station, in a cafe or in special drinking fountains in cities. After we at the gas station bought 1.5 liters of water for $ 5, we did just that.

8. Buy clothes and clothes in Opshop

There are such types of shops in Australia where people give away things they do not need. More often it is clothes, but there can be dishes and even furniture. Things in poor condition are immediately given away, and good sell for A $ 2-4. Volunteers work in such stores, mostly fussy old women. The money is sent to charity – to help the church, schools and, simply, needy people. It’s very nice there in these stores. And everyone goes shopping there. Even wealthy Australians. So if you have broken jeans (like ours) or worn out sneakers – go to Opshop. There are different networks, but all shops in all cities can be found here, for example, opshop.org. Or ask the local – they know.

9. Do not go to zoos

And also to other paid parks, where you will be promised to show animals. Absolutely all Australian animals can be found in wildlife. Kangaroo will ride in the evenings on the roads in front of your car. Koalas sit in free parks on high eucalyptus trees. Seals wear sun on the deserted beaches. Penguins … we did not find penguins, but they certainly are there! Ask the local – they will show the place.

10. Look for the rest on www.gumtree.com.au

Gumtree is our Avito, only steeper. There in the section community https: //www.gumtree.com.au / s-rideshare-travel-partners/ melbourne-cbd-melbourne / c18332l3001578 are looking for fellow travelers who, for little money, will drop you to Adelaide or those who will be traveling with you for 2 weeks with a camper.

There you can find free furniture and dishes. One of our French girlfriends in Canberra found all the furniture and utensils in her apartment on Gumtree. There you can find a job, rent a house or buy a car.

Have questions? Look for answers to Gumtree!

And you can go to Australia not for 2 weeks, but for a couple of months and, having worked at the harvest on the farm, pay back all the expenses … we did not do so, although we were close …

Beautiful! Cheap Australia is waiting for you! Get ready soon !!!

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

Ania Lockey maintains a video blog for YouTube, where he talks about the warm and sunny Spain. The girl and her husband have lived in a European country for 12 years and periodically share their experiences abroad with subscribers. In one of the videos, Anna shared, to what she could not get used for so many years in Spain.

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

Summer heat

The main and main problem for Anna remains the heat. “With a clear conscience I can say that in the south of Spain the heat in the summer is simply unimaginable. And it’s completely unpleasant. That is, if the heat in 28-33 degrees of heat – it’s hot, warm, nice, nice, then the heat in 41-46 and in the sun to 50 degrees – it’s very unpleasant.

In fact, it seems in the summer that we will all burn out soon, that the end of the world is very close, and this is not an exaggeration. At night we sleep very little. For example, I’m exhausted, because I sleep for 3-4 hours only at night. It’s impossible to go in for sports, your body is constantly in such a state, as if you have a high fever.

You can not eat normally, because you want something cool. Cooking is also impossible. You sweat very much, pores are hammered. Many people have a lot of problems with acne and so on, because the pores are constantly polluted. I take a shower in the summer 6 times a day, and even at night I deliberately get up to go to the shower. This greatly dries the skin. In general, in all aspects of life, such heat brings very great discomfort. “

In winter it is very cold

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

What unpleasantly surprised the Russian, so this is what is happening in Spain in the winter: “But it’s not cold outside, but in the premises. The Spanish winters are actually kind of warm. That is on the street is not very cold, although we often go to down jackets and hats, even in southern Spain.

But the house is such a terrible cold. That’s serious! I’m at home in the winter in the eel, I dress only in the toilet with a windward aimed at myself – that’s the only way I can change clothes, otherwise it’s just unreal.

Well, you ask yourself a normal question: is it really so hard to turn on the air conditioner? Then it will be cool in summer, and warm in winter. Heavy. Because in Spain there is a third minus. “

Very expensive electricity

“People who have an average salary of approximately 900-1200 euros per month (from 63 to 85 thousand rubles) can not afford to live with a constantly on air conditioner. Accounts for a month for a constant air conditioner can be above 200 euros (14 thousand rubles). But many visitors pay even for renting an apartment, which is 500-600 euros per month (35-42 thousand rubles), plus gas, plus internet. It turns out golden mountains. Therefore, almost everyone here is trying to save a lot on electricity. “

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

Cockroaches

But here’s a completely unexpected fact about Spain from Ania Lockey: “Probably, you did not expect to hear about such a minus. In Spain there are hefty cockroaches. There are no such people in Russia, I certainly did not. And most terrible, they fly. And fly into your house. These cockroaches are usually in the spring and summer. Live on the street, terribly fatty, terribly dirty, suffer all kinds of germs and diseases.

If they did not fly, but crawled, it would be much less frightening. But since they fly in and can jump anywhere – on you or on the bed, it’s disgusting. “

And more about insects

“And this minus you, too, is likely to surprise. The fact is that in Spain there is a big problem with lice. In Russia, I have never had lice in my life. Even at school. And if I heard that a child has lice, he was almost sheared with hair, and it was so terrible.

In Spain, guys, lice are perfectly normal. Here flashes of lice are 5-7 times a year. All people who have children usually catch lice. I had no lice before the age of 25. But here, in Spain, they brought home my daughter from school. I ran into the world of lice and realized that in Spain it’s perfectly normal. Here in the drugstores very, very many products are sold from these insects – both for treatment and for prophylaxis. Such is the Spanish horror film. “

the Internet

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

“Poor Internet quality. Even the one that is super-high-class Internet, quite expensive and compared to Russia is very, very slow. “

Holidays

“Zadolbali me Spanish holidays. In Spain there are state holidays, there are local holidays, there are strikes. There are also such things, which in Russian mean “bridge”. That is, for example, if you had a state holiday and after two days a local holiday, then usually in schools and state institutions make this “bridge” – that is, instead of one day of the holiday, you get three or four.

In fact, if I worked for the state, I would be terribly glad that I have so many days off, but since we are here, it is very annoying for us. Because, as soon as we need to get into some civil service, bank or go to the library – all these institutions will be closed. “

Medicine

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

“In Spain, a good medicine, if you die right away. If you are seriously ill, here you will be given first-class help, it will all be free of charge and of the highest quality.

But if you have a usual cough, cold, some dermatitis, an allergy or something like that – all these diseases in Spain are regarded as some kind of garbage. You come to the hospital, and you are told: “Ah, that’s a cold. Paracetamol”.

Here, everywhere and everything is treated with paracetamol and ibuprofen. No prevention of disease, no delivery of tests, well, in general, everything related to support of health and small sores, is a complete pipets. As well as an ambulance. “

Sunday

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

“On Sundays everything is closed here. You can not even imagine how really this is uncomfortable. And how pointless it is. All people on Sunday are resting, and everyone wants to spend money on their day off. It’s just terribly stupid.

Previously, there were discounts 2 times a year – in summer and in winter. Now stores can do sales when they want. And this is very good. But all the same on Sunday, everything is closed. “

friendship

Wrong side of sunny paradise: Russian woman talks about the disadvantages of life in Spain

“For some, this minus may be controversial, but for me it is important.

The fact is that in Spain there is not such a friendship as in Russia. Here such a culture is everyone for himself. Naturally, there are friends and companies with whom you communicate, there are open kind people, but there is no such concept of friendship that you will always be rescued, rejoice with you, listen, help. Friendship here is often short-term. It’s like friendship at the university – together they put out, then you correspond once a year.

This friendship is not the same as in Russia. Just have a good relationship with each other, that’s all. But otherwise, it all goes on the principle of “my hut with the edge”. “

Tourists refused to pay a double resort fee in Mallorca

Tourists refused to pay a double resort fee in Mallorca

Tourists refused to pay a double resort fee in Mallorca

As already reported Nat-geo.ru, May 1 in the Balearic Islands came into effect an increased tourist tax. According to the newspaper Express, the hoteliers of Mallorca immediately ran into problems: some tourists refuse to pay twice the tariffs, citing the fact that they were not informed about it in advance.

“Tourists were surprised by the increase in the resort fee. Some refused to pay, and some paid, but warned that next time they would consider other countries for recreation, “Express quotes the head of Palma and Cala Major Hoteliers Association Javier Vic.

The current situation causes discontent among the owners of hotels, who believe that local authorities do not inform tourists in the best way about the increase of the collection. At the same time, the island council insists that all tourists regularly pay tax.

The Balearic Islands is a Spanish archipelago of 5000 km², located in the western part of the Mediterranean Sea. The largest islands in its composition are Majorca, Ibiza, Menorca and Formentera. In 2017, the archipelago received 13.7 million tourists, becoming the second most visited by the Spanish direction after Catalonia (18.2 million).

Copenhagen will have a water park dreams on an artificial island

In the port of Copenhagen, they plan to open an aquapark. The first visualizations of the project can be seen now, and they are chic. The complex in the Danish capital risks becoming the most beautiful in Europe due to its unusual architecture (the authors were clearly inspired by the pyramids) and the decoration.

The project of the Japanese studio Kengo Kuma & Associates includes several indoor swimming pools, as well as open infinity pools on the terrace overlooking the port.

Dezeen writes that the inner basins will be especially unusual: some of them will be connected with each other using triangular arches in partitions, while others will be completely enclosed, but naturally illuminated from the windows in the ceiling.

The project was named “House of Water Culture” (Water Culture House). Kengo Kuma & Associates will work on it together with the Danish office of Cornelius Vöge and the engineers from Søren Jensen. The water park is part of a larger project for the development of the island of Kristiansholm, an artificial land plot in the harbor of Copenhagen, which was used to store paper for the Danish press.

Over the “House of Water Culture” on Christiansholm built a similar building with a spacious courtyard, where there will be food fairs and other events. The architects also shared the visualizations of the completed project.

The date of completion of the project is still unknown.

The Dead Sea Scrolls found hidden texts

They can be read thanks to the infrared analysis of the parchment.

The scrolls contain fragments from Deuteronomy, Leviticus from the Pentateuch (they are also included in the Christian Old Testament) and the Jubilee Book, written at the same time as the Old Testament, but not included in the Christian canon, reports LiveScience. These scrolls were found in the Qumran caves as early as 70 years ago, but because of poor condition were investigated only now. At first glance, they seemed empty, and only in infrared radiation were able to read the texts.

The Dead Sea Scrolls found hidden texts

The Dead Sea Scrolls found hidden texts

The most interesting fragments contain instructions for holding temple rituals (scientists call it a temple scroll) and the beginning of the 147th psalm, which is written differently than the modern versions. The belonging of one more fragment has not yet been determined, because it was written in the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet, which was out of use in the V century BC. e. Earlier in January this year, scientists were able to decipher other materials from the Dead Sea Scrolls – the calendar of the Jewish sect of the Essenes.

The oldest tarantula in the world died not in the best way

The oldest tarantula in the world died not in the best way

The spider was 43 years old when he had an annoying trouble with him, which led to the tragedy.

In Australia, the oldest of all science known spiders died. He was already 43 years old (the average life expectancy is 5-20 years), but he did not think to die of old age. In one not the most perfect day for him, he was pinched to death by a swine.

He obviously lived longer than the previous record holder from Mexico – a 28-year-old tarantula.

The oldest tarantula in the world died not in the best way

Long years of observing the spider have helped scientists to better study the behavior of these spiders and the dynamics of their population. For example, they were able to understand that tarantulas live so long, due to low metabolism and sedentary lifestyle in the usual places.

Specialists have discovered that female spiders remain in the same hole practically their entire life, which allows them to observe them. The study also gave an idea of ​​how future climate change and the disappearance of forests can affect the species.
