The existence of Jaekelopterus several million years ago signals the fact that the creepy insects and spiders that we see today were gigantic creatures in the past.
This sea scorpion was the biggest arthropod to have ever existed with an 8-foot long body.
With their segmented bodies, these eerily ridiculous creatures look like an abnormal ancestor of the crabs. Their spiked claws and large tail make their appearance all the more repulsive.
In a world where not many enjoy the sight of a scorpion or a crab, the Jaekelopterus is thankfully not alive to scare us!
