DSS :: Antarctic Vampire Lead!
The first lead has come in from the Desperately Seeking Spider contact centre. Spider-seeker Mr X glimpsed what can only be a distant cousin of Inky’s. The Vampire Sea Spider has a straw for sucking the life out of its prey as well as 10 legs. Not only is there an obvious kinship through Inky’s distant cousin in Russia, but the extent to which both have baffled the best scientific minds, confusing and disconcerting eminent researchers, suggests a close kinship of spirit. I shall certainly be interviewing this individual at the earliest possible opportunity. Unfortunately its native habitat is Antarctica, so I’m a little unsure as to when that will be.
