using its hardened abdominal disc to plug the entry to its underground home

"Butt plug spider" would have also been acceptable.

Big time nope on the guy who found a Brazilian wandering spider and his Brazilian offspring underneath his bedroom floorboards. Supposedly a very deadly little bastard. I hear the man is moving to Antarctica.

Brazil is the second best place to find local wildlife, that wants to put you in an early grave.

2nd pic, and the blurb:

"A species of trapdoor spider, the oreo spider does not spin webs, but instead, burrows, using its hardened abdominal disc to plug the entry to its underground home. A member of the Cyclocosmia genus, these rare spiders are the smaller, less hairy cousins of tarantulas."

I had to GIS that thing to determine, no it is not in fact six-legged, they just seem to have a tendency to hold the front four legs very close together, giving the impression of being one leg each.

Because I wasn't sure how to feel about an incredibly venomous spider with less than the expected number of legs: Yay, it can't move as fast? or Oh, sh*t it's so dangerous it doesn't need as many legs as other spiders!

I love that it looks like it's a Shelob-sized spider in an abandoned parking garage. Just perfect perspective.

I'll use the "oreo" in the headline as an excuse to bring up this Oreo-related subject: Newman Oreo-like cookies are better than Nabisco Oreos ever were. I was surprised but pleased.

This is not an endorsement of eating bag loads of Newman Oreo-like cookies.

That would be bad.

But it is a clarification on the idea that after Nabisco ruined the Oreo that the world was left bereft of milk-dunking cookies worthy of one's childhood memories of dunking cookies in milk.

Buddy, when they milk a spider or a snake, that ain't milk.

Why does that spider only have 6 legs?

little big man: I'm really more of a hydrox spider kind of guy....


Sorry to break it to you, but the last original hydrox went extinct in 1999. Fortunately, science cloned them for Felicia Day. That's the story, more or less.
