Caption: Cave spider. Close-up of a Lascona cristiani 'sac spider' under its web. This predatory arachnid is found only in the Movile Cave, Romania, where life has been cut off from the outside world for the past 5.5 million years. It has evolved in total darkness over that time and has lost its eyes and colouration as a result.
