Its Official: Spontaneous spiders in my toilet

... So.... for some time now there has been a large daddy longlegs spider living near the bottom of the toilet door. And there was also a smaller one living higher up the tiles. I have grown quite fond of these two and my daughter and I (toileting is a family affair) quite often converse with the spiders. A couple of days ago the big one ate the little one! Just like that out of the blue. The very next day there was another spider! So now there is a new really big one, the big one and the little one is still hanging half eaten on the wall. So my question is how and why did the big one appear? It was like he knew something had happened. He (I say he cause Im hopless at desexing spiders so we just superimposed a gender on it) doesnt appear to be wanting the little spiders newly vacated spot on the wall. He is actually hanging around near the bottom of the door with the big spider. The two live spiders face each other and we pretend that they are having a 'see who blinks first contest' as they have been staring at each other for a day and a half now. Has the new spider come to steal the dead little spider? Has the new spider come to mate with the other live spider? Should we hold a joint funeral/wedding ceremony?

i didn't know this but daddy long legs are not actually spiders! i just looked it up on google. i couldn't find anything about them 'eating' eachother tho?

sounds like you got a little soap opera going on there in the bathroom

Wow. Learn something new everyday. Apparently theres two types. One that isnt a spider and doesnt produce a web. The other one is a spider and does produce a web but doesnt appear to eat its own. Im guessing the little spider must have been something else then.

PS Word of warning. When googling spiders dont wander into;

daddy longlegs are creepy.
my radio station had this fear factor challenge thing where you had to do this ridiculous stunt and if successful, you got given a plain unmarked envelope. The envelope could contain anything between $5 and $5000. A girl on one challenge day had to lie in a swimsuit in a tank and 1000 daddy longlegs were poured on top of her.



They're apparently more poisonous than Funnel Webs but can't bite cos their fangs are pissy little things which can't break human skin.

I found a spider on my book on the Spanish Civil War but he didn't stay there very long - he was huge

Oh man, have you noticed the ads at the top of this page! Google has customised the ads to this thread.

Update on my toilet.

Last night the new big black spider had 'obtained' the little dead spider from the old big spider, and was hanging on tight. The old big spider was watching from the left, and the new stupid little spider was watching from the right.

A few hours pass..... Both little spiders are gone.
The 2 big spiders, whom we refer to as Ridge and Brooke, have returned to having a stare off competion.

More hours pass. Now Ridge, the new big spider, is hanging upside down higher up the tiles and is staring down at Brooke who has defiantely turned her back so her butt is now facing Ridge. Whatever can this mean?????

@ ridge & brooke!



ya know most people would have prolly just killed the spiders, but it is interesting watching/learning about them aint it?



i was going to post a picture of a bunch of daddy longlegs, but being as some might have been grossed out, i decided to post ridge and brooke instead
