Jeweled Spider

I didn’t take this photo, by the way (click it to see the original Flickr page it’s from)

I had no idea such cool little spiders existed! Technically, I think they’re called Spiny Orb Weavers, but are also called spiked spiders or jeweled spiders.

They look like some kind of Pokemon monster, all decked out with spikes and fur and neat decorations. It inspires my illustrator side. I want to create a whole series of drawings with these guys as some kind of alien tank that my robot army can ride on. Or something.

Gonna add these little babies to my list of favorite creatures, along with cuttlefish, octopi, horses, tigers, and don’t get me started because I’ll list the entire animal kingdom.
