Alicia DiCicco- Spider

Submitted by amdicicco on Fri, 09/07/2018 - 15:05

Sat inside the cup is a spider. The spider has a gray body which is about 1/3 the length of one leg. The spider has a brown head and legs. It acts very still as it is in a very small plastic container, A slight tap on the desk causes the spider to become more lively. As it starts to move around the cup I notice that its walking pattern seems off. The spider seems to favor walking on his left side. Upon further investigation I realize this is due to injury of one if the spider's legs. The leg of the spider must've fallen off during transportaion. Each leg of the spider is made up of three segments. Between the segment closest to the body and the middle segement is a joint. These joints are the highest part of the spider when sitting flat on the lid. The joints are also the second darkest part of the spider after it's head. As the spider crawls to the top of the plastic cup it brings all of it legs towards the center of it's body and looks as if it is hanging by only one single point.
