  • Looks like a Mexican Redknee. A creature of great beauty. Another fine example of God's creation. Form, function, and purpose.

  • I used this one, as it has similar conformation, with what I saw, in the dark.

    I have no heartburn with the spiders place in nature, but my bedroom is not an estuary, especially when I am 'kicked' out of a very sound sleep, to face danger. IMO, the critter sneaking across my ceiling, might prove a bit more potent than the Mexican red-knee. I'm still not sure I stopped my intruder, with the fumigant.

  • Of all of God's creation, I find the spider to be the most fascinating.

  • We're all thankful that spiders can't fly.

  • My AMEN, to that, Kerikeh. However, memory reminds me that I read an article many yarns ago, about how some spiders actually migrate, through flight. They, I believe, spin a web on their legs, attach the silk thread to a tree, and fly themselves like a kite. I don't remember the altitude, for sure, but planes reported wind-screen spotting, by them, at thousands of feet altitude.

    I don't love spiders, but I do respect their contribution to our Biome (from a distance, of course). (^8
