Jerusalem (Reuters) - Israeli scientists said on Wednesday they had discovered a prehistoric ecosystem dating back millions of years.
The discovery was made in a cave near the central Israeli city of Ramle during rock drilling at a quarry.
The cave was completely sealed off from the world, including from water and nutrients seeping through rock crevices above. Scientists who discovered the cave believe it has been intact for millions of years.
"Every species we examined had no eyes which means they lost their sight due to evolution," said Dimantman.
Samples of the animals discovered in the cave were sent for DNA tests which found they were unique, he said. The cave has been closed off as scientists conduct a more detailed survey.
That's ultra-mega. A race of prehistoric scorpion-men biding their time, waiting for the perfect moment to unleash their unstoppable force upon humankind.
They never imagined it would take five million years.
When the time came for them to act they had devolved into a race of tiny blind scorpion midgets.
