Arachnids playing possum?

Seems I’m not the only one to have been attracted by the work of the Golden Orb spider. This article from the Sydney Morning Herald talks about the frantic activity the spiders are undertaking now the weather has improved.

On a theme, and off the subject of the post, I almost ran over a possum this morning. It ran across the road in full glare of the headlights. I think I missed it… at least I didn’t fell or hear a bump and there was no carcase obvious on the road on the drive back. It was only a youngster. The things can get as big as cats but this one was not a lot larger than a common rat. Nice to know they are still out there despite the massive urban development around the area. I wonder though how long they can hold on?
