    yes born last year and there’s usually not 4 of them so it should be a tight fit in the den this winter and then she will kick them off on their own next summer

    it’s hypothesized that 399 stays close to the roads/people because male grizzlies tend to avoid those places and they are constantly trying to target the cubs to kill. She’s been doing this for years. but yeah- agree generally it’s a bad thing and there have been several instances of bears being fed this year. they closed signal mtn road for awhile because of bear feeding incidents up there

    Yall, my LNT spider didn’t take her web down this morning. Dang. Maybe it’s the turn coming? She takes the web down every morning without fail since June 1st when I first saw her, hides all day under the eve, then rebuilds this beautiful web every night. Last tenant just stayed all day, looked like the same species. “Common Orb?”

    This is her in the daytime spot:

    Here’s the best I could do to try to show the web (you can see the spider upper right):

    Thing gives me the creeps. Obviously can’t hang there though the winter but it sure has been neat to have it around.

    She’s a guest BB, Wink, not a pet; but I know nothing of the life cycle of these terrifying critters. Id be sad if you are serious but that’s how it goes I reckon. Intriguing little critter to observe through the season tho.

    Is that large web mass on the grey/charcoal post an egg mass or just a large, sucked dry bug carcass?

    My best guess is the latter, it’s been there for a while. I ain’t getting too close tho. I once busted an egg mass and all the little fuckers came down my arm, I jumped off a 15 foot ladder. Had a client once got bit when he got a bunch of baby black widows (brown recluse maybe I don’t remember exactly but venomous) on his arm. Put him in the hospital. The necrotic smell of this dudes arm was almost unbearable just sitting in the same room. SHUDDER.

    Here’s another one I was at my ex in-laws in Manor, TX and there was a mother spider just trooping on across the lawn with like a thousand little babies on her back. She looked back up at me like “WUT?!?” Holy fucking shit even conjuring the image gives me the willies.

    DISGUSTING. I really detest spiders although I usually let them go about their business since they target other bugs.
    Similar situation-once my mom was sweeping and must have caught a spider egg sac with the broom bc all of a sudden there were hundreds of tiny spiders running everywhere 🤢

    They are almost cute really. I love spiders but they cause this irrational reaction. I’d literally jump out of an aircraft to avoid those little fuckers. Almost out of spite. Like, I’d just hit the ground and die rather than having you little assholes freak me out for even one second. They do get to live in and around my place tho. The mayflies are collateral damage, fuck mosquitoes. I try to encourage the indoor resident spiders to stay out of site, kinda the rule.

    Mrs. Plug brought a broom from Winthrop to Issaquah and a black widow crawled out. It lives in Issaquah now.

    Why are there spiders in my sink all the time. Do they have a predilection for sinks or do they just fall in and can't get out?

    They actually need water and are looking for a drink. And yes they then can't get out. I like spiders, I'm always rescuing them.

    Big brown bears fighting in Kuhmo, Finland. The fight took place near the bear hides operated by Boreal Wildlife Centre. Check out the full trip (eng sub): https://youtu.be/e-JgjYuPIsM

    Good skunk! Dug up a ground bee nest. Woot! One of my horses got stung on the muzzle the other day. Very glad to have this gone with no effort on my part.

    Skunks dig up bees' nests and I assume eat the bees? That takes some toughness.
