lol sorry had to post the link for others to see.
i also did the search and came up with this one creepy


The Flying Spider
One remarkable species must be mentioned here—the so-called flying spider (Attus volans), a beautiful metallic blue or green in color with abdomen marked with concentric rings of blue, white and red, It does not actually fly—no spider can do this—but the abdomen bears extensive flaps which, when extended, en-able it to plane through the air thus greatly increasing the range of its leap.

Yeah, why do their legs seem to drop off for no reason and without provocation? That isn't the most sensible evolutionary move

do u think its like fur for them,and they just grow new legs?-what a vile thought.One more-picture that horrible wey they spread themselves out on a nice cream wall.Or how you think there are none yr going somewhere,u hve checked, and then all of a sudden it just appears,waiting in its lair on the floor or a book or always someting you need.Theyre coming,as we speak they are probably hatching out of their evil cocoons

No cos they are the demons of the summer.Its true they came early,but if the weather stays this way i think they will be back.I dont reckon they die in winter,just lurk somewhere till they know people will spend more timeoutside.Think about it.Last yr warm weather-world cup parties,wimbledon everyone was out.
PS kitten and new one better earn their keep this summer

Don't you have screens on your windows? I wouldn't open up a window without a screen on my window, for the primary reason that I dont want bugs of any kind to get in, and I of course don't want my cats to get out.

I'm too terrified of bugs, I couldn't imagine having those bugs flying over me while I was sleeping.
