Scientists have discovered something amazing about sea spiders – some of them can grow back their tails!
You might be wondering how this is possible, but sea spiders are different from other animals. They don’t have bones or regular muscles like we do. Instead, they have something called “tubules” that help them move around.
When scientists cut off the tail of a young sea spider, they were amazed to see it grow back! This is called “regeneration.”
The sea spiders that can grow back their tails are called “juveniles.” This means they are still young and growing. Scientists think that as sea spiders get older, they may not be able to regrow their tails.
This is a very cool discovery and scientists are excited to learn more about how sea spiders are able to do this. They might be able to use this information to help other animals and even people one day!”
