Computers brings 300 million-year-old spider fossils back to life

Using CT scans of the fossils of 300 million-year-old spiders, scientists have created 3D mdoels of the ancient arachnids.

Scientists used a CT scan to generate three dimensional images of two of the creatures, Cryptomartus hindi and Eophrynus prestivicii.

Both were around the size of a 50p piece and they lived during the Carboniferous period, before the age of the dinosaurs.
