why do so many people think spiders are evil and out to get you
look at this fucking nerd run away in an overly dramatic cartoonish way just because something touched its butt

It’s hard to tell due to the grainy image quality, but that sort of looks like a wolf spider with an abdomen covered in babies.

"AH, something touched my butt! EW!"

Anonymous asked: Hello! I live in Southern California and during summer i often see little cream and orange looking spiders outside around my apartment complex! They have a sort of soft appearance but aren't fuzzy, do you have any idea what they might be?

sounds like it might be a Wood Louse Spider Dysdera crocata

these are very common in southern california

Anonymous asked: I found a spider in my house. Whenever I approach it, it immediately stops and plays dead. I caught it to put it outside but it's super cold. Will it be okay if I release it? Or should I keep it for a day or two? It's pretty small, and from what I can see, doesn't have any markings.

chances are it will die in the cold, so keep in a well ventilated jar with a stick, most spiders can do a while without eating but if you happen across small insects maybe, but yes i’d wait till it’s warmer out to release it
