NOPE – Man Explores Missouri Cave, Finds It’s Wolf Spider’s Home
How many ways can I say "nope"? Let me count the ways. Let's start with a video share by a guy who decided to explore a Missouri cave and learned it was the home of a big ole wolf spider.
I hate spiders. I know they play a necessary part of nature, but I'd prefer they not do it anywhere within 500 miles of me. A guy exploring an uncharted cave in Missouri is braver than me. Here's the description of what he found inside a cavern:
I have a little caving fun. Some cool orbs are detected, once in the bottom of the cavern. Remember take nothing and leave nothing. Another beautiful Missouri cavern. Go ahead and pick up a big Ole spider...I dare you.. Really strange leaving this cave it really felt like a giant tarantula was crawling up my leg.
Be warned that this is nightmare fuel to the extreme.
The Missouri Department of Conservation has a helpful website talking about wolf spiders are important to the environment, blah, blah, blah. They claim "the bites of North American wolf spiders are harmless". Right. You can say that if they haven't bit you and you have screaming nightmares for years.
I don't doubt that they're being truthful about wolf spiders not being poisonous, etc. It's just the thought of seeing one close up when you're stuck in a cave that I cannot escape from now.
Excuse me while I curl up in the corner for awhile. I'll return to regular life...someday.
