In lieu of the launch of our newest Golden Edition cameras, here’s our royal (like royalty-gold) rumble!
From the back of “Fasnacht 1979,” an LP I picked up at a local book sale this weekend. Fasnacht is basically Fat Tuesday in Switzerland, and I guess they celebrate it by having scary clowns and such play in a marching band.
Net-Casting Spider, or Ogre-Faced Spider (family Deinopidae), Singapore
… a nocturnal and constructs a net/web suspended by it’s four front legs while awaiting for prey. When it detects an approaching prey, it stretches the net and plunges down to capture the prey with the net. It has 2 extremely large anterior (front) eyes that grants it superb night vision to literally net it’s prey.
