    I Don't Dislike Spiders, But......

    Australia has an abundance of toxic, venomous and downright dangerous fauna. A recent survey of tourists found the the most feared creature is the Huntsman spider. The Huntsman is quite a large spider, with a body up to 30mm and a span the size of a mans hand. They are long...

    Baby Wolf Spiders

    Okay I hate the eight legged creeps. One time this big baby wolf spider got into my house. I was home alone. I saw it run in, then it disappeared. I ran to the kitchen, grabbed the biggest steak knife I could find, and retreated to my bedroom. I was freaking out.

    They Scare Me.

    Something So Small Strikes So Much Fear

    I really don't care for them, I really really don't care for spiders. I don't run and scream but if suprised I will, with no regret towards my reaction. But if I see them from a distance, and I know I am safely away from them ever touching me, I am facinated to look...

    Car Spider

    There was one that made a web on my drivers side mirror on my car this morning.  I didn't have anything to knock it down with so I just took off and got on the freeway.  The little bastard hid between the mirror and the casing and never fell off.  Amazing how well...

    I Love, I Love, I Love Spiders

    Look at their webs, and how they create everything - they are so very complex and unusual. Do you think it is so easy to coordinate 8 legs also? Without errors? Spiders are very small, but maybe smarter than most of the people who can never multitask or similar. They are very...
