I saw a spider walking on the side of my desk and I tried to catch him to release him outside because I don’t hurt them but he escaped so I lost him and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to burn down my entire studio so I don’t die someone send help.

Some spiders can transfer mercury contamination to land animals, study shows (phys.org)

Sitting calmly in their webs, many spiders wait for prey to come to them. Arachnids along lakes and rivers eat aquatic insects, such as dragonflies. But, when these insects live in mercury-contaminated waterways, they can pass the metal along to the spiders that feed on them.

I left my bungalow immediately last night and drove back to Sarajevo (one and half hour drive) after I entered and the first thing I see is a palm sized wolf spider lazily crawling over the floor.

Owner offered to kill it, but I was "nah, I wouldn't be having a shut eye in there at all".

I noticed an intersection of my dear wife’s worst fear and my #Steam library so I made a new collection. Any suggested additions? Clearly I need at least eight. 🕷️
