Today is Save a Spider Day!
As your official Ambassador of the Arachnids, you can rest assured that in our house, we arachnid enthusiasts observe this holiday with all the proper solemnity and respect due such an important cause. Spiders in peril? No problem.
However, you may find yourself wondering, "Exactly how does one go about saving a spider?" Bully for you that Daniel, our Common Pinktoe tarantula (a. avicularia), thought we should provide a demonstration. Thoughtful bloke, that Daniel.
Gentle Reader, without further ado, I present to you the following:
Kelli's Official 3-Step Process For Saving a Spider©
1 Plastic Container
1 Sheet of Paper
1 Spider in Imminent Danger
You happen upon a spider in a state of jeopardy.
Carefully place the plastic container over the spider.
Slip the paper under the container and most importantly, beneath the spider.
Congratulations! The spider is now saved.
No worries, the spider will thank you later!
A word of caution: this method works best with spiders. Dogs?
Not so much.
This post is dedicated to Sofia, my first 8 legged baby, the one who started this fun little fascination of mine.
