Here's an idea for geocaching. This specimen is to be placed along the Luce Line Trail, and would be named, Sugar & Spice.
To the right you see a common, rubber spider that might be found along any geocaching trail in the contiguous United States; no different than any other Dollar Store, rubber spider. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
All spiders except those in the families Uloboridae and Holarchaeidae, and in the suborder Mesothelae (together about 350 species) can inject venom to protect themselves or to kill and liquefy prey. Only about 200 species, however, have bites that can pose health problems to humans. Many larger species' bites may be quite painful, but will not produce lasting health concerns.
Spiders are found all over the world, from the tropics to the Arctic, living underwater in silken domes they supply with air, and on the tops of mountains. In 1973 Skylab 3 took two spiders into space to test their web-spinning capability in free-fall.OK. OK, we get it. Spiders...
But this rubber spider is a little different than most others. Turn it over and you will find a geocache hidden inside - complete with micro log. Pretty clever, wouldn't you say, loved ones? A perfect addition to our growing collection of geocaches along the Luce Line.
