Precious of the Day: This Creepy New Arachnid is Named After Smeagol From 'Lord of the Rings'
Iandumoema smeagol is a newly discovered type of daddy longlegs (also called harvestmen) which is a type of arachnid but NOT a spider. It has a lot in common with its namesake, it lives underground and it's a sickly yellow color. One thing it's missing is those large eyes.
Because of its life underground, scientists believe this species evolved without eyes.
