  • Impossible - cute Australian Spider

    A species of Australian spider has been found that is described as "cute" - definitely flying in the face of tradition

    The fact that bees kill more people, I think the cuteness factor for these spiders is palatable.

          Maybe more colorful than cute .

          I don't mind spiders as long as they don't sneak up on me.

          Now walking through a web gives me the creeps.

          We have alot of wolf and jumping spiders in our area... no cuteness about them for sure.

          My cats like to mess them up tho .

            When you do that you are ending the dream of a spider that thought really big.

                  The classic situation is where a Huntsman Spider conceals itself behind the sun visor in the car. Upon lowering the visor it then drops directly and suddenly on your lap which, I admit, gives some pause for thought.

                    The spider would think it had jumped on a Giant Squid with the mess I would make...
