“One of the unique characteristics of papa’s long legs is the ability to flex the tips of their legs,” says Vanessa L. González, a computational genomics scientist at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, using small, articulated parts called tarsomers.

To get an idea of ​​why scientists want to study Daddy’s long legs, try playing the “One of these is not like the others” game the next time you see one.

“If you watch a father move with his long legs, he will only walk on three pairs of legs.” Gilherme Giant says:He is a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The remaining legs, he adds, swing through the air, checking the spider’s circumference.

And when they find something interesting, they can have it.

“One unique characteristic of Daddy’s long legs is the ability to curl the ends of their legs, which is achieved by breaking them up into dozens of small, articulated pieces called tarsomers,” Vanessa L. Gonzalez, a computational genomicist at Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, said NPR.

You might think that the tress is like the part between your knuckles, Gonzalez said.

One leg can hold dozens of shrimp plants, making it incredibly versatile. To find out how the spider developed this ability, Gonzalez, Genet and their fellow researchers sequenced the genome of the papa’s long legs — and eventually, they succeeded in creating paternal deficiencies by manipulating his genes.
