Anyone remember "The Thing" ?



I hate Arachnids but this little fella could happily live in peace in the corner of my room , it's known as a bunny harvestman and lives in Ecuador's Amazon rainforest.

Belonging to the order Opiliones, there are more than 6,650 species of harvestmen all across the planet. And fossil records show they've been around for a long time. "Contrary to a common belief Harvestman [sic] do not have venom glands and are absolutely harmless," Kay explains over on Rumble. "Harvestmen have been around for at least 400 million years and lived even before the dinosaurs." This species was discovered in 1959 by German arachnid specialist Carl Friedrich Roewer.

The more I see the more I'm convinced nature is as mad as a box of frogs.

That is the OG... the REAL wolf spider.

The wolf spiders hanging around my house and freeloading are IMPOSTORS!!! They look nothing like wolves!!!

BTW, that thing is crazy-looking. I can't stop staring at it. Freaky!

I think it's because they can become almost the size of a wolf.

Ages ago, my girlfriend of the time had work early and woke me up in bloody horror. She went to take a shower and there was one about as big around as a hockey puck in the shower. Of course I had to handle it, and I'm not a big fan of spiders, it really took a lot out of me.

She was naked though, so it was worth it in the long run.

Just keep telling yourself that while the neurotoxins start to course through your body...

it looks like a pokemon.

Like you I don't mind a harmless spider getting free room and board, but if it can kill me i'll kill it first. I like those little jumping spiders, or AKA penny spiders, they bungee jump of your fingers, sometimes they do it multiple times and sometimes i think they enjoy it.

Luckily it isn't a case of kill or be killed over here , although some nasties are taking hold down south so I hear.

I tend to like spiders.

Not a huge fan of the ones that aggressively bite people, but ones like harvestmen and jumping spiders are awesome little friends.

Yeah, Kurt Russell is kind of like the American version of David Attenborough.

No! Not gonna imagine that hitching a ride to the US in a banana box like the banana spiders do. Despite the risk of the spider, really looks cool.

If reincarnation is reality, I hope to come back as a spider. They are fascinating.. I love to watch them.

The wolfy part is kinda cut, but the spider part NO!
Those legs are awful, maybe even worse than a regular spider. They look extra extra long and spidery.
