I love Spiders, especially Grass and the little fuzzy black Jumping Spiders we have around here often that I like to toy with because their abrupt movement is so cute.
And how they're all "Hiii-yaa!" when you confront them.
I hate how naive people are about Spiders too, I notice this idiotic behavior is more abundant in women, kinda dispicable considering I'm a girl. Phobic or not. If anything they're the ones that need to be smashed with a shoe for existing.
It's not the animal's fault they end up in a home searching for food, shelter, and water. If you live where Spiders are common, it's you're own damn fault because you chose to live there, try to seal your house better then too!
I feed a really pretty spider by our garage I call Edunia. She's the size of a quarter already.
