The Joro spider may look scary, but in reality it is only in Japanese folk tales


A horde of “giant” invasive flights spiders began terrorizing people across the region, forcing some to discover a mysterious past behind annoying creatures.

In Georgia and South Carolina in the United States, it has been reported to observe the octopus Joro, which is capable of spinning nets up to ten feet deep.

The invasive species from Japan is characterized by bright yellow, blue and red throughout the abdomen and can reach up to 3 inches wide.

Researchers currently expect that they will spread along the east coast of the United States as their population increases, but have assured residents that they are completely harmless to humans.

They may even help destroy a population of brown marble stink bugs, another invasive species that is causing problems in America.

Moreover, they carry with them an unusually rich mythology behind their name.

In Japanese folklore, Joragumo is a supernatural creature that is partly a beautiful woman and partly a spider.

A collection of fairy tales called Tonoigusa, written by Agita Ansei in 1660, tells the story of a young samurai warrior who meets an attractive young lady 19-20 years old who carries her child in her arms.

She tells the baby that the samurai is her father, and from that moment there is a proposal for a long and happy romance.

But soon the warrior realizes that the woman has a terrible secret, and cuts her with his blade, forcing her to flee.

When he sneaks into the attic where she lives the next morning, he makes a shocking discovery – a woman is a huge joro about half a meter in size.

There is no indication that America’s newest beetle can attract people with romance, in their home country they grow up so large that they can catch small birds in their web, they say.
