New Home Construction Up!

by Jhet Bhlak on October 14, 2010

I have a new neighbor! I’ve decided to call him Bob The Builder. Why? Well he was the first thing I seen when walking into the garage this morning. Bob was sitting at about shin height spinning all over building his brand new home next to the outlet in the garage.

Let me tell you, Bob is pretty damn flexible from what I seen. If there were a spider gymnastics team he would for sure be on it. He was flipping all over and doing back bends trying to set up his web. I think I caught some of it on the video.

Bob just happens to be the kind of spider I used to catch and keep as pets when I was a kid. According to this website, Bob is a Funnel Web Grass Spider and not really dangerous to people.

Once I get home I’ll try and see if I can get a good pic or video of Bob and his new home. I’m pretty sure it will be complete by time I get there. In the meantime this is what I could get of him before I left for work:

The video is still processing on YouTube but will probably be up shortly. I know, I know…you’re all anxiously awaiting Bob’s debut!

Bob moved! Apparently he must of been getting the heebee jeebees from me staring at him. And just when I was thinking of catching him and making him my pet too. Darn!
