Huge floods in NSW displace wolf spiders. Note for arachnophobes - lots of spider silk, plus one shot showing lots of spiders in a tree.
  • Like tent caterpillars, but not so innocuous <:(!)
  • Yeah, they have to be "Wolf" spiders. Not even Jack London anthropomorphic thoughtful-like. They couldn't be bunny spiders or cappybara spiders or manatee spiders or bunny spiders or whatever kind of spider Charlotte was or tribble spiders named 'Boris' or something. /Not particularly scared of spiders, mostly, though I prefer that most creatures with an exoskeleton are large and seabound and yummy with butter. I will confess to being scared of blind gooey things like maggots and lamprey eels and pupa and newborn humans.
