Meet Dolomedes briangreenei, or just Brian for short. Here he easily strides out onto water looking for a meal.
Officials named the spider Brian after World Science Festival cofounder Professor Brian Greene.
Brian can glide along on the surface of the water. The bugger can even remain submerged for up to an hour as it hunts for insects, fish, and cane toads.
While their bite isn’t dangerous to humans, they’re certainly an unsettling sight to come across when you’re taking a dip in a river or stream.
