Archaeologists uncovered the remains of a dangerous ‘dog-sized’ marine scorpion in science first.

The new huge sea scorpion is the first in 80 years and the first in Asia, suggesting that the terrifying creatures were more prevalent than we imagined.

Archaeologists in China have unearthed the remnants of a new species of enormous sea scorpion.

The 3.3-foot (1-meter) prehistoric creature is supposed to have swum the oceans 430 million years ago, when scorpions were gigantic apex predators.

Scientists have called the species T. xiushanensis, and it is connected to modern-day arachnids and horseshoe crabs.

According to scientists, it most likely shifted across seabeds using its own weight.
