    Default Spider love thread

    Since my babies all left yesterday, I want to post about spiders more than I usually do. A phidippus audax made a nest by my door and the eggs hatched, yesterday all the tiny spiderlings began their migration. There was a bunch of them just hanging out on the door glass and they were fun to watch. Little pin head sized jumping spider babies that were so cute! They slowly migrated away one by one during the day until finally none were left when the sun went down.

    Anyway. This is now the spider thread. The spider love thread, not the spider hate thread! These are all gentle and friendly spiders. They don't bite typically and even if you manage to provoke one into biting, the bite is minor and harmless to humans.

    I'm sadly addicted to this show, & the spider ones are always the most interesting/entertaining.

    It's both informative content-wise, & hilarious in its tacky approach-- along with the overly intense narration/strange backing music, they intermittently add these random sound effects to the bugs, like wild boars, lions, and I swear I heard a dolphin once..

    Also, a friend of mine had one of these- I held her a few times- surprisingly light in weight. Very docile.
    I think of them as ugly hamsters.

    Spiders get a bad rap. I don't freak about creepy crawlies because my dad had me hold worms and spiders (daddy long legs) as a little girl. Thanks dad!!!!

    Okay. I'm here. I'm trying.
    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.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    This is the goliath birdeater tarantula!

    I knew them as Haitian Birdeaters when I worked in the pet industry. They're a huge tarantula, I think the world's largest. I read the name comes from the explorers who discovered it... it happened to be eating a hummingbird at the time.
