Hope the squirrels don't pick up that trick, I'd waste a LOT of ammunition.

At least we haven't heard of discovery of new species of squirrels. Headlines below article on the 'new' Peruvian Amazon spider were about more 'new' spider species.

This is very similar to the Senate.

Generally in the U.S., we have a type of spider that makes a small orb-web with a straight line of debris running up through the center of the web.
Somewhere in that debris will be the spider, effectively camouflaged by the debris.
It is believed this behavior is related to the instinct of the common politician to have a protective ring of babies around him, waiting to be kissed.
