    Cat-Faced Orb Weaver




    :: By Whitney Cranshaw, Colorado State University Cooperative Extension, Entomology

    "One of the most common but unusual spiders people encounter late in the season is the cat-face spider, Araneus gemmoides. It tends to make its webs near lights and in corners along the outside of buildings. Full-grown females can be quite large and have a combination of odd projections on the abdomen as well as dark indentation markings that some say resemble the ears and eyes of a cat.

    Despite their large size and bizarre appearance, cat-face spiders are harmless to humans."

    Ohhh, I love spiders. I used to run out and try to catch little ones when I was younger. I'd keep them in a jar and try to feed them other bugs I caught. This was of course before I realized that they couldn't survive like that, and then I'd get upset when they died...

    It's an exercise in counterphobia for me.

    I actually do get up close and watch spiders, if I think they won't jump on me. I'm as fascinated by them as I'm terrified by them.
    Hold me!!!

    Awesome thread. I like to save spiders and put them outside before they are eliminated in some cruel manner.

    I love slugs and snails. I always pick them up and hold them for a little while. They are so freaking cute with their little feelers. My customers at work think I'm crazy when I "save" them and put them outside, and I think they're crazy for not thinking they're adorable.

    there's one i let bite me on occasion.

    he lives on the windowsill in front of my sofa and keeps an eye on things. he's beautiful and kills mosquitoes, which i detest. sometimes i open the window and have a nap. he'll come down, bite me and go back to the window later. i guess we have an arrangement.

    i just realized he's getting big.
