Our blog usually covers art, fashion, jewellery, dining out and various other cultural activities that our guests enjoy so much. This week however, we bring you news of an exciting, but all together more down-to-earth, discovery. Newspapers reported last week that a brand new species has been discovered in Morocco – the curiously named ‘flic flac’ spider.

Found in south-eastern Morocco, not far from the Algerian border, this little arachnid caught our eye as he is quite unique in the insect world. To get around the Sahara this spider propels itself along by is its ability to move by means of flic-flac jumps. It literally cartwheels across the sand and is believed to be the only spider in the world to move this way. An acrobatic little fellow!

What started as news in a specialist scientific journal soon became news elsewhere and he got a write-up in the International New York Times. Here is a video of Morocco’s most famous spider, doing his thing across the dunes: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/06/science/a-desert-spider-with-astonishing-moves.html?_r=0
