An arachnid dating from millions of years ago was discovered well-preserved in a lump of amber sporting an impressive boner for its species.
The fossil of a Halitherses grimaldii, an ancient harvestman arachnid considered cousin to today’s Daddy Long Legs, was unfortunately trapped in oozing resin from a tree which preserved his body, and his fully erect tool, perfectly.
The poor spider must have died with a massive case of the blue balls, only this one 99-million-years-old.
The historic arachnid Casanova and his epoch-making phallus…
The male Harlitherses grimaldii spends several months in puberty stage, and when it finally reaches adulthood, it can boast of a sexual organ nearly half as long as its body when it is when fully engorged.
How many human men can boast of a half-a-body-length organ?
Unlike present day spiders and scorpions, which use their legs to transfer their sperm to the female of their species in tidy little packages, the H. grimaldii inserts its fully-extended member into the female’s genital opening.
This particular ancient harvestman preserved in amber was in a fully-aroused state when the resin entombed his body, giving the whole world a glimpse of his ultimate frustration, and making him the first well-preserved fossil to ever exhibit engorged genitals.
In this case, he may even make the record for having the longest case of the blue balls in animal history…99 million years worth.
On the other hand, the H. grimaldii may have merely been struggling for his life after being trapped in resin, causing his blood pressure to shoot up, and his member to become accidentally engorged.

9 of the Most Unusual Service Animals
Apparently, dogs are not the only animals capable of providing emotional support.
Animals have developed remarkable senses to help them adapt to their environment. Because of these heightened senses, they have become useful to humans, especially when it comes to sensing impending danger for them or guiding those with disabilities.
When it comes to service animals, a dog is the most commonly used, although the use of horses and monkeys has also been documented.
But have you heard of reptiles or pigs used as support animals by people with disabilities or health conditions? Here are some of the most unusual service animals....
Watch This Brown Bear ‘Chill’ With An Alaskan Guy
What would you do if a wild bear sits and ‘chills’ next to you.
Bears, though popular as stuffed toys, are actually fierce in real life.
People cannot actually hug and cuddle with it in ways kids do with their teddies. No matter how furry and fluffy they look like, truth is, they are ferocious as lions.
However, we were totally left in awe after watching a video of a random bear that came out of nowhere and suddenly decided to hang out with an Alaskan camper....
Hilarious Parrot Has An Evil Laugh Like a Super Villain
Here’s the parrot who became a YouTube celebrity because of its blood-curdling laugh.
"Of all the creatures on Earth, only two can produce human language: humans and birds. Of the few birds that can imitate human speech and sounds — including mynah birds, crows, and ravens — parrots are clearly the best at it," writes Ashley P. Taylor in her Audubon magazine article, "Why do parrots talk?"
Taylor added, "Pet parrots have all the essential conditions for picking up language — time, inspiration, and mental ability."
A YouTube user — who is identified only as Mark G. — decided to showcase such a pet to the rest of the world. His feathered friend's uncanny talent is enough to send a lot of people running. The sound that the parrot makes is reminiscent of a movie villain or some diabolical character who's out to get victims....
