This is funny, but I have never seen a bolas spider. Have you?
They’re on the checklist of Minnesota spiders, though, so they exist this far north. I’m going to have to make finding one an objective of my summer research plans. They’re nocturnal, though — I might turn into that weird guy poking around in the neighborhood bushes and trees late at night. I swear, officer, I’m not a peeping tom, I’m just looking for arachnids.
Hmm, the cemetery might be a safe place for nocturnal spider watching.
