    This is amazing. I’m trying to understand what I’m looking at. Around 45 seconds I can see something moving. What part of the spider would that be? I looked up spider anatomy and thought it could maybe be the chelicera?

    Horrifying! I love it.

    Hey PZ, at my previous house I used to have a large, nasty looking spider living by the door. I liked to toss in different kinds of bugs and watch the murder take place. I noticed there was one species of beetle that would sit perfectly still in the nest, then move one leg at a time in very slow motion. In about an hour or two it was able to get out of the web without ever being noticed. Have you ever seen that behavior?
