Does whatever a spiderbabies!
You will remember several weeks ago when trillian_stars discovered a spidermama in the dark corner of our kitchen cabinet and we discovered that she had a fluffy ball of spidy eggs and we've been waiting and waiting for them to hatch. Well, get out your cherry flavored cigars folks, because WE ARE PARENTS!!!
A few days ago we noticed that the spidy eggs had (most likely) hatched in their fluffy enclosure because we could see spots of brown inside. After a few days we figured they made it out of the eggs and died, but NOT SO! they were just waiting -- like spiders! Sometime last night they chewed or clawed or some other way evacuated their silk pod and started spinning webs!!! each one of them is about the size of the point of a pin -- not the head, the point. They are TINEE!
Here they are with their silk spiderbaby hotel. You may clickenzee to embiggen
And here's a full resolution crop of one.
Obviously I need better macro equipment now.
