Photos of Spider

spiderask:

Spider found in Portland, Oregon, crawling around on my bathroom floor. I’ve never seen anything quite like her - I thought she was a harvestman or even a mite at first, but no, clearly a spider. Isn’t she charming? She was very fast, and about |           | big, legs included. 

Hey, buddy!

She’s a spitting spider, Scytodes. Definitely Scytodes thoracica, going by the pattern on her cephalothorax. Those guys are so neat- both in how they capture prey and in how they look.

That big prosoma (fancy science word for “cephalothorax”… which is another fancy science word meaning ‘fused head and thorax’. …For anyone who didn’t know that) houses extra-large venom glands, the better to fire her gummy cocktail onto unsuspecting food.

Thank you for sharing!

Omg, I was right to think she was a cool spider when I spotted her! And I IDed her correctly!

I’m surprised she didn’t spit at me, with the way I kept poking her in one direction and another so that I could photograph her.

Just as we’re about to move out, our new place is really starting to look spidery. I found this little gal on the bathroom floor and thought she was very interesting looking. I then proceeded to spend 20 minutes in the middle of the night crawling around the bathroom floor in my nightgown with my camera, because I’m a complete nerd.

Despite being loose in every other place, Magneto’s coat nevertheless clings to his six pack and biceps like it was painted on.
Magneto also feels compelled to pose villainously even when he’s just trying to explain why he felt the need to rescue his daughter.

Viper brings the Les Yay wherever she shows up. I don’t even know who this blonde woman is but I already ship it.

Some of those are actually quite _large_ nudis, at least compared to the ones you see around here.

If People Talked About Dogs The Way They Do Snakes And Spiders

Dog Lover: I love puppies! They're so adorable.

Cynophobe: Ewww, puppies. They terrify me. I have to kill them when they get anywhere near me.

Dog Lover: Oh. Well, dogs really aren't that dangerous, it's just one or two cases that were blown out of proportion by the media -

Cynophobe: One time a huge pitbull got into my garden and I had to chop off its head with my rake.

Dog Lover: o.O

Cynophobe: It was really scary for me because I didn't get it on the first strike so - [goes into detailed description of slow and painful death of dog which I will spare you because I'm not a sadist]
