The Spider with an Aqualung


The diving bell spider breathes air, but spends its life underwater! To achieve this feat, this spider spins a cocoon that works as an aqualung. The spider traps tiny bubbles of air in the hairs of her legs and brings them underwater to store in the cocoon. The air bubble is also a nest for its young.
