The Six-Eyed Sand Spider (Sicarius hahni) is one of the few arachnid species that the internet seems to have generally taken a liking to, against widespread misinformation about the potency of spider bites. Ironically, S. hahni is also one of the handful of spiders whose venom is potentially lethal, or at least extremely painful! There is, however, no solid evidence of a bite to any human. In fact, it is also a fairly popular (if somewhat hard to find) pet species.

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
