Spiderday (#20)

What a great day. It’s Halloween AND spiderday. On the same day. And it’s the 20th edition of spiderday. It just doesn’t get any better.  Here are the arachnid-themed stories I pulled from the web over the past week.

But first… just LOOK AT THIS amazing little spider:

Spiderday (#19)

It’s been a few weeks since the last SPIDERDAY (sorry…). Here’s another edition of this feature, with links to some of my favourite stories about Arachnids. It was easy to pull this together this month, since it’s  Arachtober.
