Spiderman Would Need Size 89 Feet To Be Able To Walk Up Walls, According To Science!
You know what they say about men with big feet? They wear big socks!
And are more likely to be able to climb walls apparently... This is according to science. It's a bit long winded but stick with us.
Research by Cambridge University zoologists has found that geckos are the largest animals that can scale vertical surfaces using their sticky footpads.

The research also showed that humans would need sticky pads covering roughly 40% of their body surface - or roughly 80% of their front - to be able to walk up a walk vertically like Peter Parker, aka Spiderman. This is because the bigger the animal, the more they weigh and the sticker they need to be!
Co-author Dr Walter Federle said: “If a human wanted to walk up a wall the way a gecko does, we’d need impractically large sticky feet - our shoes would need to be a European size 145 or a US size 114.”
This means that Spiderman would need at least size 69 feet to be able to scale walls!
We reckon Spiderman will have to stay a figment of fiction because that would be one funny lookin' super hero.
It's tough for trees to thrive in the semi-desert Sous valley region of southern Morocco, but scientists have found that some might be getting a helping hand from an unlikely source.
