Just 10 minutes ago I relocated a daddy long legs for a co-worker. She was screaming "Bonnie, Bonnie, Bonnie get it, get it, get it!!!!" I hope I didn't hurt it when I picked him up. I felt his small body hit my finger when I picked him up
They are so delicate, its hard to tell if I am hurting or helping sometimes.
Spiders are beneficial and amazing creatures. If people can open thier hearts to cats, why not other creatures? All have unique abilities that contribute to our circle of life, so to speak. Imagine the surplus of misquitoes and flies we would have in our lives without spiders.
We have an adopted spider in my bedroom somewhere. She stays near the ceiling, crawling along the space where ceiling and wall meet. She is big and black. By big, I mean maybe an inch or less across. She is big enough for me to see with my glasses off
Daphne just watches and watches her as she crawls along, then runs back and forth across the room trying to figure a way to get up there. Didn't see her last night - Daphne was looking for her. Kept looking at me, then the ceiling as though asking where Spider went
Two of my nieces started out with the fear of spiders thing when they were in grade school. They got it from their friends - something "girls" are supposed to be afraid of. We nipped that in the bud pretty quickly. Now, one of the girls acts that way around her friends, but she isn't really afraid. The other just relocates them.
