Ehya eeehya ya ya ayah!



I had to lift my feet off the floor for fear of spiders crawling up my pajama leg. Eep. I didn't realize I was so shivery about spiders!



However, very cool article. I think that is quite interesting, and I wonder how many other examples there are of things like this that we just haven't seen or noticed yet. I like it.

Aw that's lovely. Wolf spiders are affectionate too. They carry their babies on their back and leave a trail of silk behind them to follow in case a baby falls off. And Nursery spiders make a little nursery and actually take care of and feed their babies. Cool.

****I have a blog--check me out!

I like spiders and I, for one, find them to be beautiful and very interesting. (I know I'm a distinct minority )



The pic in that article is good. The spiders actually remind me somewhat of a crab!

Very neat article. For some reason I feel sick to my stomach after seeing the picture though. But it's like a train wreck... I have to keep looking at it because spiders fascinate me.

This thread fascinates me. It's really interesting to see what a strong reaction a picture of a spider can have on people.



I personally thought the picture was neat, but I'm only scared of spiders when they're on me or jumping at me.

Cool. Check out my friend's photo log at http://www.flickr.com/photos/techuser/ too, he's got a few spiders himself and is an excellent photographer. He's a member here as well, Techuser.
