Welcome to todays installment of What I Learned This Week.
Please join the discussion in the Comments
First, I learned if you switch phone plans and phones periodically, you can really save money! Cricket had a great deal which included a Free Phone at $5.00 a month for the next 6 months with Autopay. This is actually a government program for those who qualify, and the phone is a Cricket Ovation 2 with 5 g. which is really good.
The 2nd thing I learned is about the Tarantula:
The male Tarantula is the one that goes looking for a mate. If he sees a nest and maybe a females leg hanging out of it, he knocks…. Pay close attention to the next part. It’s funny and creepy as hell….The female meets the male at the entrance and if she likes him, she approves. If she doesn’t like him. She eats him! Imagine? Knock..Knock… “Hello,. Oh Hell No, You are totally ugly and have an attitude. But, I am hungry and now you won’t waste anyone else’s time!”…
Oh, but it gets worse..
.So, the female has approved. Now the male…. probably to make sure the female doesn’t change her mind…stuffs his ladies mouth with some webbing..a gag, if you will….Bet, you never knew Tarantulas were kinky! But alas, their not. He has to use his hands/claws/legs? to get his juices/etc and put them inside the woman…How sadly unromantic is that?
I also learned a male Tarantula can live 12-14 years, if he doesn’t get eaten.
I actually learned more about Tarantulas but am starting to get itchy writing this, so I will end, here.
Looking forward to hearing/reading what you learned.
