How did that cartoonist steal it out of my head?
Speaking of spiders, I’ve mainly been reduced to just feeding them twice a week. I’ve got a 4-day weekend coming up on the 18th, maybe I can find time to do more with the adorable little critters then.
I’ve mainly been reduced to just feeding [the spiders] twice a week.
The small spiders are growing into big spiders by sucking out and snacking on all your juicy insides. Eventually, you’ll be an indigestible husk inside some deflated PPE.
I like the lamp shade (“made from locally sourced biodegradable materials”) but have serious doubts about its effectiveness.
P.S.: I’m sure the PPE husk would make a lovely place to stash away egg sacs.
“The triangulate cobweb spider (Steatoda triangulosa) can capture animals that are up to 50 times its own weight, lifting them up off the ground into its web using five different kinds of silk.”
PZ Myers says
I’ve got an S. triangulosa in my lab. They’re beautiful animals, too, but relatively rare compared to S. borealis (which is even bigger).
Impressive illustration. I liked her. Your imagination is at its height
