Did you know that spiders shed their skin? Much like a snake sheds it's skin? It's true, they do! Sure, I had to Google it to find out for sure, but now I know, and so do you!
Oh, did you want to know WHY I Googled it to find out? Because I found this in the basement.
That is the exoskeleton thingy of a Wolf Spider.
Just so you can see the actual size of this ginormous arachnid, I got my hand as close as I dared, THAT is how dedicated I am to all of you and your thirst for knowledge. And yes, you may think it is not really all that daring to get your hand close to the shedded skin of a spider, but just the knowledge that the owner of said skin may still be lurking in my basement was enough to make me want to run out of the basement squealing.
Does anyone else feel a little bit itchy now? Ick.
