Its 'I have a snake' big. That's already in the 'run screaming in terror' level of big for me.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

Yes BUT... that snake is about the size of a pencil. Sure it is still a snake... but I fear the other picture of the spider with the small bird.

The article said that the Snake is half a meter long. That's a big pencil.

Just to properly terrify everyone, golden orb-weavers occur on most continents.  They're all over the South where we call them Banana Spiders.  We usually had a couple in the backyard each year when I was growing up.

Though really, that picture is shot in such a way the perspective makes it look a lot bigger than it really is.

The ones we had in the Midwest were very pretty. The gold markings were iridescent on some--very striking when the sun was at the right angle.

None were big enough to be "scary" in my book. Only a couple of inches across at most, quite a bit smaller than some of the common giant house spiders we find every week or two in our house (Pacific Northwest), and those aren't an issue either.

Well, that certainly cured his single Wolf spider problem  why so serious?

She was probably carrying them on her abdomen, rather than them coming out of her.

God damn it science, stop doing that. Try it with silk worms, I'm considerably less concerned about those with carbon hardened  jaws, mandibles, and ovipositors. Fucking spiders stabbing their ovipositors into your chest and laying eggs in your lungs...



Thanks science. Thanks a lot.

Just wait until we start growing them larger to harvest more silk.  Then the genetic lab where some secret cabal is developing animal hybrids has a disaster..

I always said modern science was how we'd get D&D being reality.   Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

There's going to be an island somewhere that specializes in this. And gets overrun. And then the video game starts.

There’s a really gross, massive new spider for you to have nightmares about
Quote
Just in case you’d got used to all our current spiders, here’s a really massive, alarming new one for you to have nightmares about.
Sean Spicer claims 'even Hitler didn't sink to using chemical weapons'

Thank us later.

The gigantic, hairy, venomous creature is all-new, too – it’s an unknown species, found in a cave in Mexico, and is an impressive four inches wide.

Researcher Michael Wall of the San Diego Natural History Museum says, ‘This is the type of spider that a lot of people would shriek and run from.They’re pretty meaty.

The spider is related to the famous Brazilian ‘erection spider’ – but isn’t as likely to kill you, or give you a fatal hard-on.

‘The odds of discovering a new species are pretty high. Generally new species discovered are itty-bitty things that people don’t pay attention to, so given the size of this spider, that was surprising.’

The scientists found the spider after seeing their exoskeletons in a grotto in the Cacachilas – then finding living specimens nearby.

‘Once we knew that they were in these dark, reclusive places, we started targeting those and ended up finding more of them.

Spotted taking shelter from the rain a month or so ago.  It was remarkably cool with having a phone hovering a few inches overhead.

Spiders fly using electricity.

tl;dr Some spiders can take advantage of the electrical charge differential between the ground (negatively charged) and the air (positively charged) to launch themselves into the air with the help of their silk.
