In 2013, a researcher discovered this peculiar structure deep in the Tambopata National Reserve in southeastern Peru. This tiny tower, made of silken material, is circled by numerous pillars that resemble the mysterious Stonehenge of England. People then dubbed this structure “Silkhenge” and wondered what kind of creature would’ve created it.
Only six months later, in 2014, entomologists Phil Torres and Lary Reeves found the answer deep in the Amazonian jungle. Despite failing to catch any creature in the act of building this structure, from one of the tower he brought to the research center, emerged a tiny, translucent spider.
Their true identity, however, is still a mystery. The spider was too tiny to identify and the adult was nowhere to be found. DNA analysis simply confirmed that “it’s a spider” but not specific enough to classify it into any known families.
