Queens Wild Kingdom: The Big Butt-Ugly Spider

An example of Arachnidkus Buttuglius, right here on 160th Street.

Hey Tony, we got these spiders here in California also. Right outside my second story window... and I live in a nice little town by the sea. I hate 'em, but I like what they do; ie, eating up other little pests. Funny video.

I was out in the garden taking pics of a spider and web this afternoon...figures.

Wasn't that just Shelob from Return of the King ? :)

...Actually, I was thinking more of the "Big Giant Spider" running the vatican in that South Park episode. "The Vatican Law cannot be changed, so sayeth the Spider!"

I grew up in Ct. and I DO NOT remember ever seeing spiders like that in the area and my family comes from New York City and they talk about the mythical cat sized rats but never the huge spiders. I say they snuck in with the California tourists and he should be sent back post haste. Sorry, Robert, I don't mean to throw you to the wolves, but when it comes to big, gory, spiders, it's every man for himself.
