There's a spider here in the south that carries its live young on its back.  The spider is a good size as an adult, maybe two inches long.  It's a bit disconcerting to catch a glimpse of it near you, babies tightly packed.  It's even worse when you realize after you stepped on it, it was almost quick enough to get away.  And the babies you thought safely smushed are running furiously out from beneath your boot.

... running furiously out from beneath your boot.

Or worse, up your boot.

I believe so, yes.  But then, sheer Law of Averages would favor it being from there in any case.  :P 




... running furiously out from beneath your boot.

Or worse, up your boot.

This would definitely be my bigger concern.

My favorite part of that photo is "Scroll".

Although come to think of it, the "energy" feeding the egg sack with little energy lines might be funnier. I hadn't looked that closely the first time. For some reason.  :hide:

Ugh.  At least the Tolkien names were appropriate.
