Whirlpool the Gilblin sketches! And yes, that is a tiny crab claw on her fin.
not killing myself is a personal achievement but you cant really brag about that at dinner parties
nobody legitimately needs me and that’s a really shitty feeling
Q: I'm curious about the spider measurements you're doing during your research, do you measure every spider part or a few select ones? Also, do you measure just one aspect of a part such as length, or do you use volume or something?
I did measure every single spider. All 200 something of them. If this becomes my thesis work, I will be measuring A LOT more of them.
I did a series of measurements:
(From my poster)
Figure 2. spider anatomy showing each measurement taken:
body length (a), abdomen length (b), abdomen width (c),
cephalothorax width (d), and one of each pair of legs (e-h).
I then took each of those measurements and divided them by the body length. That gave me a series of indices- these indices basically told me which body part was most important in determining foraging behavior- as well as which guild will be the most easily recognizable from their morphology.
So, in short, to really answer your question- I was most concerned with a spider’s “shape”. Because once I divided by body length, that is what the index would tell me.. Cephalothorax shape, abdomen shape and so on… except for legs- legs was more about the length.
This is super cute! Love it :D
Thank you, PJ, for your generous donation towards my spider research!! I love an actor that loves spiders ;)
Here is one of the girls your donation will help- she is an orb weaver native to the Amazon, Encyosaccus sexmaculatus, where my research was conducted. She looks like she’s wearing black socks.
I become attached to people I shouldn’t.
I distance myself from the people who matter.
I am bad with people.
I am good at being alone.
But I hate being lonely.
