Huge f**kin Spiders!!!!
 

 
And other weird, frightening, gross and fascinating animals. Let out your inner geek and use this thread to post some pictures/videos of animals you find interesting, along with any relevant facts about them. Spiders, snakes, jellyfish, scorpions, sharks, tigers etc.

If it's an animal and it's not cute and cuddly, it belongs in here.

I'm gonna start this one off with a picture that's already famous on boxden (for those of you who remember that bird eating spider thread.


[pic - click to view]



This is a real photograph taken near Queensland Australia of a Golden Orb Weaver eating a bird that was caught in its web. If any of my fellow Texans remember those black and yellow spiders that build those big a.ss webs in the summer time, they are in the same family of spiders as this one.
These spiders build unusually strong webs which are high in protein so that they can capture large prey. When an animal (such as a bird) is caught in the web of a golden silk orb weaver, it will inject its prey with venom to break down the food for eating and then use it as a food parcel.

It's bite, though painful and irritating, is not lethal to humans. It would still be scary as f**k to have one of these crawling on you

Ballooning (Spiders):


[pic - click to view]



This is a cool characteristic of spiders, especially amongst the young, the ability to balloon. They shoot their silk into the air, and ride the current, in a somewhat controlled manner; interestingly enough, wind currents can be a mass-transit system for all sots of organisms, allowing them to gain prevalence/colonize distant regions.

Rare, living fossil, 6-gilled shark

Additional extinct types are known from fossil teeth. The frilled shark was thought to be extinct itself; it was only discovered alive in Japanese waters in the 19th century.[2] On January 21, 2007, a specimen was found alive off the coast of Japan near the Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka, southwest of Tokyo. The shark was captured but was not adapted to live in the warm, shallow water that it was moved to. The specimen died soon after capture.

The eat their food whole. The produce they insanely toxic saliva in their gums, I believe. All it takes is one bite, if you manage to escape, and they won't chase you. The toxic in their saliva, once it goes in your cut will slowly k!ll you. They have amazing smelling receptors that can sniff out the airborne molecules from the rotten flesh caught by their tongue (like a snake) that is receive by this organ at the roof of its mouth which then is received by the brain. They can sniff you out up to about 6 or 7 miles away.

Some info about the world's deadliest venomous animal. There are 20 different species of Cubozoa (box jellyfish). They are the ONLY jellyfish known to actively hunt their prey as opposed to "true" jellyfish who simply consume any creatures unfortunate enough to get caught in their wake. I guess whether or not you can really call these creatures jellyfish is debatable.

When people use the term "box jellyfish" they are usually referring to the Chironex Fleckeri aka "sea wasp" (pictured above) although the term actually describes the entire Cubozoa family. Sea wasps have four clusters of primitive eyes, which scientists believe can see and recognize certain shapes and colors thus prompting them to swim toward potential prey. It is important to note, that no one really knows how sea wasps process the images they see with their eyes, due to the apparent lack of a central nervous system.


I think I'll let my boy Steve Irwin take over from here.

lol I was going to post jellyfish before my last post. That box jellyfish is amazingly dangerous and contains a crazy potent poison. I remember watching a special on them a few years ago I think on Discovery. I remember the 3d stimulation of what occurs when come in contact its tentacles.

Apparently when you touch it, the tentacles have these microscopic spike like needles I guess, that shoot out when the tentacles is touched. The 'mini-tentacle' goes right into you hand or whatever, and the poison is instantaneously injected directly into your blood stream and nervous system and leave a very nasty looking and painful mark vvvvv

Those stingers are called nematocysts and they eject venom in a fraction of a second.

This video is the nematocysts of an irukandji jellyfish (one of the most dangerous types of cubozoa). It is magnified 400 times.

The firing of a nematocyst on a box jellyfish is the fastest reaction among all living things.

Breeding behavior Of Mallards

Mallards form pairs only until the female lays eggs, at which time she is left by the male. The clutch is 8–13 eggs, which are incubated for 27–28 days to hatching with 50–60 days to fledging. The ducklings are precocial, and can swim and feed themselves on insects as soon as they hatch, although they stay near the female for protection. Mallards also have rates of male-male s3xual activity that are unusually high for birds. In some cases, as many as 19% of pairs in a Mallard population are male-male homos3xual[7].

When they pair off with mating partners, often one or several drakes will end up "left out". This group will sometimes target an isolated female duck — chasing, pestering and pecking at her until she weakens (a phenomenon referred to by researchers as r*pe flight), at which point each male will take turns copulating with the female. Male Mallards will also occasionally chase other males in the same way. (In one documented case, a male Mallard copulated with another male he was chasing after it had been k!lled when it flew into a glass window.

Yea they tend to go to areas where people stay. But they seem very nonchalant, almost lazy. They do have a lot of patience as well. The special I saw on them, the kids were playing like 20 feet away form a dragon and all the dragon did was just lay there.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Marriage is a sacred institution between male ducks and female ducks

Some of you may have heard of these. Female botflies will capture mosquitoes in order to deposit their eggs on them after which time they will release them. When the mosquito lands on a host, the eggs will either fall off and embed themselves on the surface of the skin or they will enter the host body through the mosquito's bite.

When the eggs hatch beneath the skin, the larvae will stay inside for a period of about 8 weeks.

Remedies include covering the wound with tape, petroleum jelly or nail polish as this will asphyxiate the larvae, forcing them to come to the entrance of the wound where they can be removed.
