  7. From today's Facebook post:

    The two-striped jumper (Telamonia dimidiata) is a species of jumping spider that is found in Asian rainforests. It doesn’t produce any toxin that would be significantly dangerous to humans. Yet, this gorgeous spider has been the unfortunate subject of an internet hoax, which started way back in 1999. The hoax claimed that this spider was highly venomous, and that it was found lurking under toilet seats in public bathrooms, waiting to bite unsuspecting users. The hoax has been circulated on various websites and is completely false. This spider is innocent of everything, except being inherently beautiful (and ability to catch unsuspecting insects, as this photo shows)! {Spotted in India by JungleDragon user, ಗಣೇಶ _ganesh_} #JungleDragon

  8. The iridescent fly, the white and orange face of the spider, the translucent legs and the blue tint on the end of the spiders feet makes this very colorful and made me stop and look again. Posted one year ago
