• The Diving Bell Spider spends most of it's
life underwater. They spin themselves air
chambers with their silk that allow them to
breathe (like a mini submarine). They don't
even need to resurface to fill it with air either,
the bubble acts as a gill, extracting dissolved
oxygen from the surrounding water.

    • For anybody wondering how this likely works. CO2 is over 35x more soluble in water than O2, which is why you need red blood cells in your blood to move oxygen but not CO2. So as the CO2 the spider makes dissolves out of the web-reinforced bubble, O2 is able to diffuse into the bubble.

    • When I was a kid my cousin told me about a spider that did this kind of shit and sat in the bottom of the deep end, waiting for someone to swim over and attack. Always made me terrified of the deep end. As I got older I realized he was just being an ass. Then I saw this. Looks like no more deep end.
