Default Spiderlings

Another photo inside the coldframe. This female spider keeps her spiderlings on her back while they develop. She takes them everywhere she goes until they are able to fend for themselves.

That is an amazing picture.

I wonder how many babies she's carrying?

Yuck! I'm sure it is fascinating but that just makes my skin crawl!

Wow ozric that looks amazing, I quite like spiders and I would never kill one

By the way iOS your username by any chance because you like ozric tentacles?

I had quite a few of their albums back in the 80's early 90's like erpland, tantric obstacles, sliding gliding worlds, pungent effulgent, the bits between the bits, live ethereal cereal & Jurassic shift. I liked the original band but have changed band members and don't know what their music is like now.

If your username is not because of the above then please ignore me lol x

I hate spiders, but on this occasion I will concede that this is a a amazing picture I can even see her eyes, and what an amazing design of nature, carrying her babies on her back. Nature is amazing !

See suze when you look at them in that way, you begin to appreciate them and look at them as beautiful and not so scarey x

Not sure I appreciate them appearing in my bath or bath towel or anywhere else in my house, but I can't deny they are one of Gods creatures. They don't get squashed in this house, my hubby picks them up and puts them out, 😉😀
