Interesting article about a new very social spider in Madagascar.
When I read the title my first thought was; social spiders like in that comedy movie arachnophobia? Actually a very interesting read, I hope someone observes the way the males compete for the female in a mating situation. Also there was a new giant species of trapdoor spider discovered last week in Australia. Crazy to think of how many animals, especially arachnids and insects are still undiscovered in this world! Nice post! I will try to post a link of the new trapdoor spider, see if it works for you.
Cool stuff! The world is strange and wonderful place, about which we know so much less than we think we do.
Very cool! And I will have you know that I am now the proud owner of a jumping spider girl! Supposedly she is eating small crickets but the cricket is still there so I put a couple of small meal worms in there too. I am thinking about getting some fruit flies……
Sorry but that guy looks creepy to me!
Theres so many species of spiders around 50000 it doesn’t surprise me that another one has been discovered
