I loooooove spiders! Only the little, surprisingly interesting jumping spiders. A little story: (:D)
In the Summer when I was a lot younger, I'd always go for walks in the woods behind my house, run through the (50 acre :D) field next door that I was given permission to play in, play in the creek down the road (there's around 5 acres of woods there to play int), look for fossils, etc (this story is getting a little long)... so one day when I came home and I was bored, so I was wandering around the back yard. I noticed that on a trash can full of sand that we were going to dump in the sand pit for our pool, there was a tiny 1/4 inch jumping spider... IT WAS SO CUTE.
It looked (to me) like it "needed" water... so I got a handful of water, dipped my finger in it, and put a drop near the spider. The spider scuttled over to it, and stuck its pincers into it and I watched the drop disappear. That's what really fascinated me. The spider drank what I gave it. I still can't be exactly sure why it was so amazing to me, but now I carry around a tiny vial of water and I always look for spiders around the yard. O.O
That was very very very long for a short story.. I'm sorry xD I had to say it! :)
but when I start to tell a story it all just pours out. So ignore the extra details. xD
And THIS is a reeeaalllyyy cool NatGeo link about tiny spiders with BRAINS in their legs :
