Only sissies are afraid of spiders.

This spider has learned how not to be seen.

It's a Trojan Spider.  Inside are tons of little spiders, with weapons.

Does it write "Some Pig" to confuse abattoir employees?

First of all, I don't even know what this is. If it's supposed to be a spider, then it's the shiattiest spider I've ever seen.

I think it's pretty good, given that  it was drawn by a farking spider. I'd like to you do better using only  your bodily secretions.

If the web is observable, then does the spider do ambush hunting away from it's home base??

Spiders as a whole make me say WTF EVOLUTION? At what farking point did one species say "I can easily be more survivable if I get a shiat ton of eyes, shiat out building material, eat my own young cause I'M HUNGRY DAMNIT, oh and also I should inject my prey with something that DISSOLVES it for me because chewing is WAY TOO MUCH WORK after I've used my ejaculated building material to make an intricate structure that Novelists can use to describe their future stories due to its complexity. Also, fark it, who doesn't love building trap doors! And now I can use my ass glue to make something that scares off everything else because I want to be left the fark alone.

My two cents. Of course I believe in evolution. No one thing, no matter how all knowing it is, could possibly conceive something that horrific. If it was created for a video game every nerd would be hitting the message boards screaming "OP" until it was nerfed.

I have the same issue with Emperor penguins. At what point does an entire species spontaneously say "Hey! Let's spend 70 days In Antarctica, in the middle of winter, with nothing to eat or drink, and just for shiats and giggles we're keep our unborn children with us"

wildcardjack: I personally have nothing against spiders less than 15 mm


General rule of thumb, usually the smaller the animal, the more venomous it is...

Why smaller than 15mm? Would I be right in thinking that you would freak out if a giant taratula were to walk on your head?

I'd be more afraid of the little tiny venomous ones that you can't see, hidden away in a crevice somewhere, waiting with the patience of a well trained ninja to pounce...

Bravo little Spider. You said to yourself "does anyone really fall for decoys?" Then you played Mass Effect 3 multiplayer and spammed Decoy against Reapers and saw...you played Halo Reach and Halo 4 and spammed Hologram and SAW! You saw that more often than not noobs will fall for decoys, holograms, spider like web things built from trash. Build away little buddy and camp...camp till the perfect opportunity comes by.

What does the spider do with the mock spider it creates? It seems like it would want to create models of the insects it wants to eat, so they'll come by and say "Hey, baby, how's it - WHOA WHAT THE FREAK YOU AIN'T REALLY AIIIGGGHH!"

So Arachnids have evolved the behaviors of our sit-com teens like Farris Bueller?

I know who it is! It's the damn Crack Cocaine spider from:

Spiders on Drugs.

Out pimpin' when he should be webbin'!
