Discovery Debuts New Animal Planet App

Discovery Communications has launched a new standalone app “Real Scary Spiders,” in partnership with Animal Planet and game developer Fuzzy Frog.

The app lets users collect, nurture and raise spiders, and even bring their pet spider to life through augmented reality.

“Real Scary Spiders” is available now for iOS and Android devices at
