Satan's Bunny Slippers: PsyLord: [ image 555x360]
oh hai guyz, wut's going on here?

I like this one.  The other one skull did was just.....well, *I* have the lady parts...NO spider needs to be near the lady parts!

Otherwise, unless they're REALLY HUGE and in my HOUSE, I'm kinda ok with them.  If they are doing anything to be in my way, like the one currently living between the window/storm window in my back room, meh, they can stay as long as they would like.

Stay out of my bed, and my shower.  And toilet.  Don't go there either.


I would rather have spiders than the bugs they eat. My only caveat is if they are over thumb size, they go outside. I have a cat that likes to eat spiders and I don't want him to take a chomp on something that can chomp back.

Jarhead_h: They're a SOCIAL spider? HOW?  Spiders are cannib.....

In addition to being among the relatively few social spider species, S. sarasinorum also display a curious trait called suicidal maternal care. It's as cheerful as it sounds: After a few weeks of mothering, female spiders allow themselves to be cannibalized by their offspring. "They start kind of liquefying their body from inside," Grinsted said. "The babies crawl on top of these females and start biting them and suck out the juices. The adult females sit still and let them do that."


Some spiders are social.

FTA: "Instead of an actual insect, they placed a dry leaf in the web. And instead of shaking the web by hand, they used a reproducible source of vibrations - a pink Minivibe Bubbles personal massager, from Fun Factory. "

Did we really need that kind of detail?
