We love spiders!
Spiders are such magical creatures. They are fierce hunters and can spin the most beautiful webs. There are so many reasons why we love spiders!
Whenever we see a spider in the house we let them be since they are most likely finding and eating other bugs that have invaded our home.
There are such a wide variety of spiders. They all demand a closer look.
What do you call a spider lover?
Spiders have eight legs and are classified as arachnids which include other eight legged creatures such as scorpions, harvestmen, tics and mites.
Arachnophile - A person who loves spiders
Arachnid refers to eight legged creatures but comes from the ancient story of Arachne. She was such a skillful weaver she dared to challenge the gods. That usually ends badly and in this case, Arachne was turned into a spider but at least she was able to continue weaving beautiful webs.

Here is our design featuring 24 unique spiders you can get on t-shirts, notebooks, calendars and posters. Each one of these spiders is worthy of it's own shirt. Lets look at them more closely.
These harmless (to humans) spiders are colored to look like wasps which helps them avoid predators. They eat whatever they catch in their web. The females are much larger than the males and they will eat the males so mating, for the male is tricky.
Orange kneed tarantula
Sometimes also called the Mexican red kneed tarantula, these beautiful spiders have red or orange stripes around some of their joints. Their bite is apparently similar to a bee sting. They are nocturnal hunters not web spinners.
The black widow is probably the most well known spider on the planet. They live on all continents except Antartica, and there are many varieties. They are poisonous but not as terrible as most people think. You probably won't die. Males are not poisonous and apparently they don't get eaten as often as their namesake implies.
