Brown Recluse and Black Widow on my hand at the same time
Hello friends, I want you to know that I was scared but confident the spiders would not bite me. I handle a lot of spiders and have never been bitten. The water keeps the spiders from walking up my arm. On the first take the recluse almost went up my sleeve. http://www.facebook.com/quaoarpower Music by Jonasty42. Loxosceles reclusa and Latrodectus mactans cruising on my hand in Texas. I found them both on my cousin's ranch - the recluse was under a pile of plywood and the widow was in a pumphouse. I also found a third spider, Cicurina, but I didn't even think to include her in the fun.

Vinegaroon Ƣݔҩᾫ٨ӷ
www.facebook.com/quaoarpower This song is from Thailand, called "ลืมไม่ลง" or "Luem Mai Long" (literally means "Can't Forget") This is Gertrude, my Vinegaroon (ARACHNID -Mastigoproctus giganteus.) She comes from the Chiricahua Mountains of Arizona. She uses her sensitive tail and two antenniform front legs to hunt insects and arachnids at night. At the base of her tail is a gland that can expel a mixture of concentrated acetic acid (vinegar) and caprylic acid. While caprylic acid is not as strong as the acetic, it nevertheless can dissolve chitin, a main ingredient in arthropod shells.

Translations: the Finnish one is nonsense until the last 2 lines, "Now I choose out of these the one who's out/ puh, pah, out of the game!" Hungarian: "Ecc, pecc, you can go outside/you can come back in the day after tomorrow/onto thread, onto chickadee/the cat jumped over the mouse/run!" Estonian: "Eeny, kaki, candy, nommi/ the old man jumped over the bomb/Bomb went one hard bang/the old man looked at the hole in his shirt/Mice were tickling his belly button/ You're out of the game." Sorry for my bad Estonian pronunciation, I just couldn't wrap my mouth effectively around those words!
