Ever seen a spider with 8 eyes, yes you heard that right we all know spiders have 8 legs, but a woman in Australia discovered a new species of spider right in her backyard that has 8 eyes. Amanda De George first saw the eight-eyed creature over 18 months ago, but it was only recently that she managed to find the spider again, capture it and send it to an expert for identification, according to the Daily Mail. she had no idea that she had come across a new species of Jotus brushed jumping spider one year ago. The spider had a vibrant blue face with eight eyes. She quickly snapped some pictures of the spider and uploaded them on the Facebook group 'Backyard Zoology'. The two spiders were sent to Mr Schubert in Melbourne, who specialises in jumping spiders. The spider will be formally named and described when Museums Victoria opens its labs again.
