Sea spiders can regrow body parts, not just limbs

SEA spiders can regrow body parts after amputation and not just limbs, according to a study released yesterday that may pave the way for further scientific research into regeneration.  

“Nobody had expected this,” said Gerhard Scholtz of Humboldt University in Berlin, senior author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. “We were the first to show that this is possible.”
