not on here much these days so I thought I would drop in and see what’s happening - seems Tumblr is gradually recovering from its sale in 2013 and becoming good again. Happy to see that, was going to close down my Tumblr account(s).
Mysterious 500 Million-Year-Old Ocean Predators Could Be the Ancestors of Spiders

Anomalocarids are one of the oldest families of animals on Earth, and they looked like nightmarish sea scorpions. But a new fossil discovery actually contains traces of their brain structure — and amazingly, their half-billion-year-old brains look a lot like an arachnid’s.
Though some anomalocarids may have been as big as 7 feet long, these newly-discovered specimens are closer to the size of today’s arachnids. The critters you see fossilized below are about 8 cm long. Still, they look pretty insane — especially when you consider that their segmented heads are so similar to what we’d see in an arachnid today. A team of paleontologists led by Peiyun Cong found the three gorgeously-preserved anomalocarid fossils in Yunnan Province, and described them today in Nature…
