A New Species Of Tarantulas Named After Johnny Cash

A new species of tarantula has been named after Johnny Cash. Aphonopelma johnnycashi is “found around Folsom [Prison] and the males are predominantly all black, so it fits his image,” says naturalist Chris Hamilton, who led the team that discovered the spider. The only way to kill them? Put them in a ring of fire, until they go down, down, down and the flames went higher.
