Of Camel Toe And Spiders

Now that www.blabla.co.za is the #1 South African Blog Site for Camel Toe pics according to Google, it’s time to concentrate on spiders.

After last weeks post by Greg about spiders I said I had a spider nesting under our windowsill and would post some Foto’s. So here goes.

I contacted the spider club to get some help on identification and to find out if it is dangerous.

This is the reply I got…

“What you have there is a female Brown Button Spider Latrodectus geometricus, which I have diagnosed from the egg casings in her web, which are covered with bumps or knobs.

Brown Button Spiders are considered to be medically important, although we are informed their venom is weaker than the Black Button Spiders.

Should you be worried?  That depends on you and your circumstances.  I personally leave these spiders alone, and do not remove them, if they are under a windowsill.  I would remove them from a pool motor housing, and perhaps from under garden furniture etc.  It all depends on where they are, and how likely I would inadvertently ‘grab’ one.  What you must remember is that these spiders are pretty common, and you might be forever removing them.  Tolerance with awareness is probably the better route, and they are useful, as they catch lots of insect prey.”

It also turns out that they can lay up to 100 eggs per casing. I count 9 casings… My wife disagrees with the professional.

I feel a song coming on…. …… ……”Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot“?

  1. So I guess all of that means that I'm still not going to get to see any female human camel toe?

    Damn you guys.
