Description Edit

If you were an inch tall, this beast would flay you alive and devour you in about fifteen minutes. It would have to chew up all your little bones and strain out the crunchy bits with bristles around its mouth. This animal is native to Lakewood, CO. I caught it at 20th and Simms. Vocabulary: chelicerae, pedipalps, autapomorphy. An ARACHNID is characterized by having 8 legs, 2 pairs of mouthparts, 2 body sections, and a cephalic plate. They include spiders, ticks, mites, scorpions, camel spiders, whip scorpions, and daddy longlegs. Swift and vicious, this arachnid from a Lakewood basement makes pudding out of spiders. To address concerned viewers' dislike for "arena"-style feeding, I must remind them that this animal ONLY takes live food. Also, when you swat flies in the house, you yourself are engaging in "arena-style" combat. This video was inspired by Karl Mecklenburg.
