Arachnid Debate

Now, for Sci-Friday!

Justin (the boyfriend) and I have been having this debate for a few months. The question is whether a spider with wings is more terrifying than a spider without wings. He says of course it is, while I think that since spiders have the ability to jump ridiculously long distances, having wings does not add much to the scare factor.

However, a recently discovered species of spiders build decoys as defense or to lure prey. The decoy is a spider shaped conglomeration of dead bugs, leaves, whatever the spider chooses to use. That is terrifying! Check out the article and a creepy picture here.

    Read the article. I bet the spiders do it for religious reasons
