Little Miss Muffet is about to stroke out.

Call the spider, not the IRS. It's probably lonely anyway.

I'm not sure there's a whole lot of difference in the faunas of Australia and Florida any more.

They must spin their webbing in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere as I've read where studies have shown that they spin long webs which allows them to travel through the air on differences on electro-magnetic lines of force.

With any luck they'll feed on the Burmese pythons.

I hope we don't find any of these in our toilet.

If it was really "new species", just discovered, they wouldn't already know that it can live for decades.

I was inspired to see how much it would cost to have a pet tarantula. Surprisingly affordable.

So when is the next book tour?
