This is another story in pictures… Apparently this breed of spiders finds its way to water before dying (like this one, in the sink). I mean look at it… Have you ever caught a spider sleeping on its back?
It is alive…
When I first saw it, it was in the bathtub and I was trying not to wake it up… then I realized it was near death. But, I held the pencil over its legs and it was able to grab on.
I mean look at it, slumped over on its No.2 life raft.
Eventually it gave up holding and just fell off the pencil… 8 legs and barely the will to stand up. This is the last shot I have of it before I put it out of its misery.
