Ladybird Spider - crawl away home!

I saw this and I thought of you, Jamboree.

Stardust will probably like this story also.


Rare ladybird spiders released in Dorset

http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/14479661

UGH !! Evil or Very Mad



the spiders are still only found at a few sites in Dorset.
So glad I don't live in Dorset!


and just when you thought it was safe ...
RSPB Arne warden Toby Branston said: "To be introducing such a rare new species here is very exciting, and I hope we can help spread it further."

I heard about this on BBC radio this week and wondered what the ladybird spider looked like - now I know. Pretty little things aren't they?
