New Spider Found in Australia

In Australia, a new "albino" spider was found. Scientists say it is not completely albino because it still has some brown on its abdomen. The spider is 1.2 in. wide, and was found by a man who lived in a town in western Australia. The man found the spider, caught it in a jar, and sent it to the Western Australian Museum. They think it is a trapdoor spider, that lives in burrows its whole life, like other trapdoor spiders. Scientists are still researching this spider to learn mor about it.
A white spider.
