Cryptid of the Day: Papua New Guinea Giant Spider

Description: According to cryptozoologist Debbie Hynes, a father of one of her friends, while stationed in Papua New Guinea during WW2, saw a large cobweb, then followed it to a 10-15 ft spider. It was a foot away from his face, and he slowly backed away from it. There have been other reports of such spiders as well.

A $200m Chinese-built fish processing plant planned in Papua New Guinea could allow Chinese-backed commercial vessels to fish legally in the Torres Strait. It has raised concerns about unregulated fishing in the same waters, potentially threatening the Australian industry and local PNG fishers. Also, the deal could attract Chinese funding for PNG-flagged vessels.

Under the Torres Strait Treaty, Australia and Papua New Guinea are allowed to fish a shared area of the waters known as the protected zone, which straddles the fishing zones of the two countries.
