I’m afraid no one will, and that makes me sad. They’re so cute! They’re like a bunch of puppies, all awkward and bumbling, stumbling out of the egg sac to try and figure out this messy ol’ world. So I made a video of Steatoda triangulosa spiderlings that, like my usual spider videos, will flop. I don’t quite know what to do about that — I’ve got to carry out a world-wide campaign to readjust everyone’s attitude towards spiders.
So I made my video into a YouTube premiere. You won’t be able to watch it until 7pm Central tonight, and I think the idea is to build a little anticipation and promote it before it’s available, as if maybe people will tune in expecting something more than 20 minutes of baby spiders.
Surprise. It’s 20 minutes of baby spiders. I simply can’t hide the truth.
Check it out in about 12 hours. They’re lovely and will melt your heart, if you give them a chance.
