Spiders

No, I'm not doing a post about spiders. Just the idea that if we could talk to them, it would be a lot easier living with them.

Hawaii is home to a spider which goes by the epically awesome Game of Thrones-esque scientific name of Theridion grallator. Theridion Grallator has a happy face on its butt, so it can't go around being all up in other spider's faces with its cool name because happy-face butt.

The pattern may change according to what food the spider has eaten and it hides during the day.







Wiki says they're endemic to Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Maui and the island of Hawaiʻi in rainforests at elevations of 300–2,000 m (980–6,600 ft).

I found this imagined conversation between a human and a spider somewhere on the weekend. I tried to find where it came from was not successful. You know spiders want to be out of your way as much as you want to be out of theirs. If only we could communicate that.
