    Nancy Landrum commented on "Image of Pholcus phalangioides":

    A wonderful closeup, of course he looks so much like all spiders here, I'm glad they I can't see their faces. I like to picture them like the spiders on Minuscule, the French insect and spider animations where they have buck teeth.

    Nancy Landrum commented on an older version of Ecosystem Roles:

    They vibrate so rapidly and look so silly, I named them clown spiders. I wonder if anyone here has seen the French animations called, Minuscule. They have a spider just like these, but they have him as an orb weaver, and you should see his face. These computer animations are done on real background and are amazing. They are available on Youtube.

    Nancy Landrum commented on an older version of Lifespan/Longevity:

    I wonder if these spiders keep growing as they age, and the only deceased ones I have found are huge, relatively speaking. I have raised several generations in my home because they do wonders at keeping all other tiny critters under control. I also see these spiders living within a foot or two of another, so I figure when food is scare, they will turn on one another.

    Nancy Landrum commented on an older version of Communication and Perception:

    I have watched their mating rituals too. I had a mommy spider in between the windows and the babies were already colored and were on their way to meet the world. Up in the far corner was a male who would run pretend assaults on the kids to draw the mother close to him, as she would of course charge. I watched this in my kitchen window for days until the mom felt it was time to start the cycle all over again and the did the deed right in front of my eyes. It's good the kids had mostly escaped, they didn't need to see that.
