Good News and Bad News.

Arachnophobes can relax.  There are no spider pictures shown here.

The Good news:

If you are a Male African golden web orb spider - you have two penises.

The Bad news:

Both penises drop off during sex!

Who knew that?
More to the point, what were they doing spying on these tiny mating spiders - which can take up to 14 hours!
All this peeping activity on a tiny male spider 5-6mm. long.  The female of the species is 10 - 20 times larger!

How does that record go again?

'The female of the species is more deadly than the male.'

And profound thanks for no pictures!

trying to come with reasons as to why we don't have such a bad lot in life, i suppose. either that, or attempting to convert humanists into moral relativists.
 
JJ: Especially when said female spider is 10-20 times larger than her mate!

kermit: Interesting point.
But here's the thing.
How does a humanist penetrate spider culture in order to take a moral relativist's viewpoint?
Only kidding...
