Ben's Spider

(viewed 1575 times)
Bookmark and Share
This is a spider that Ben found in his bedroom. Needless to say he
removed it before going to sleep!

Aside: Is there a children's book called Ben's Spider? About a boy
"Ben" who had only one arm, and a spider "Ben's Spider" which had
only seven legs, but still wove a perfect web. I could be imagining

joie says:

It's a proper genuine full-size CD.

I don't object to spiders in principle. I just wish they weren't so freaky :)

14th Sep 2005, 15:45

Euphro says:

Wow Kostika! That's a gorgeous pic of a lovely spider. I don't think I've seen hunting ones that big in Ely :)

joie says:

kostika: That's one mean looking spider! I'm not sure I'd be entirely comfortable with that wandering round the room...

14th Sep 2005, 15:48

Euphro says:

I love the way hunting spiders, even the really small ones, will turn and watch you.

14th Sep 2005, 15:49

14th Sep 2005, 15:53

kostika says:

I've seen bigger. We get huge wolf spiders. We seem to mostly have hunting spiders out our way. I've rarely seen other kinds. I think they hide.

14th Sep 2005, 15:57

14th Sep 2005, 15:58

kostika says:

The hunting spiders will get you when you sleep.

14th Sep 2005, 15:59

seaneeboy says:

Kos - why would you say that? Why? WHY?

14th Sep 2005, 16:01

14th Sep 2005, 16:01

kostika says:

But I'm still laughing :o)

14th Sep 2005, 16:03

Euphro says:

It's quite tickly when they walk across your face, and they feel surprisingly cool :)

14th Sep 2005, 16:10

NO no NO no NOOOOO!!!

14th Sep 2005, 16:11

kostika says:

Euphro says:

I'd love to handle a tarantula, but so far, I haven't had the chance :)

14th Sep 2005, 16:17

your a stronger man then me euph!!! i profer snakes myself

14th Sep 2005, 16:18

kostika says:

I hadnled one when I was a kid Euph. They're really furry and soft. It was kinda freaky yet totally kool at the time. (I was about 8)

Spike snakes are good too :o)

14th Sep 2005, 16:19

i dont know oif i could handle a tarantula, i may try.. im getting a gecko lizard next week. im going to call it spike colin rufius legardored snarf fargher, just to be a bit different!

14th Sep 2005, 16:21

Euphro says:

I've always wondered if the fur on a tarantula was hard or soft. Thanks Kos (snakes good too) :)

14th Sep 2005, 16:22

kostika says:

The fur on its legs was soft. I was holding really still and was a little scared at the time even though this one was a friend's pet. So I didn't have the nerve to try to pet the body.

14th Sep 2005, 16:23

wowza. That spider's huuuuge! Cool.

I've handled a tarantula a few times. Spiders are great. Now cockroaches on the other hand...

Just to instill more fear, my dad actually woke up from a spider bite before. He had inadvertantly trapped it's leg in his mouth while sleeping, and it bit into his lip (the skin was thin enough to penetrate and leave a pretty impressive bite mark).

Waps (what's my password again? Ahem..) says:

Spiders are great...keeps the other, less savoury beasties at bay.

Cockroaches. Not great. Definitely not great. In fact, possitively hateable.

Praying Mantis: My personal faves. Like the hunting spiders as mentioned above, they spot you from quite a distance, and watch you eagerly with their beedy little eyes (on their cute little triangular heads...ahh). It's great that they take such a keen interest in my well being, and I'm sure they're not really just sizing up lunch...
