Snails Are Hermaphrodites

Snails are Hermaphrodites and Ants Never Sleep

So can snails fuck themselves and do ants ever suffer from sleep deprivation?

Also I found a large spider that looked no different than a shelled walnut in my bed recently. I think it may have had a thing for me but I would much rather have found something or someone else waiting for me in my bed.

I did spare it's life so it still may be lurking around somewhere.

Also this is not meant as any sort of comment aimed at widowsaddiction who I would not mind discovering hiding in my bed at all.

I went through a period of time once in which whenever I would think of a girl a spider would magically appear.

A crazy looking spider just appeared from out of nowhere. No joke.

I've often thought that snails had the best of both worlds.

Do you believe me?

Really?

Wild, LOL

One winter we brought in our rubber tree plant, and without knowing it, a California snail lived there in the shade of a ceramic ornament. All winter we sprinkled fish food onto the soil of the plant, and the snail would eat it, and enjoy our company. From time to time we would find the snail pretty much anywhere in the house, but the next day it would be back at the plant sleeping.

After a while we would actually move the snail to random places in the house, and sure enough the next day find it back where it lived, attached to the ceramic ornament under the rubber tree plant. We came to respect this critter, as it knew where it was, knew how to find it's way home, and was much more intelligent than we would have ever assumed.

In the spring there were suddenly about 35 offspring. Cute little snails, going off in all directions. We picked them up, put them back in the plant, and moved the whole thing outside. That snail had babies, and there was no other snail inside with it. We were once again amazed. It was like a Tribble from Star Trek - the damn thing was "born pregnant"...

I always do my best to avoid stepping on snails when ever it rains here in California. Snails have a place in my heart forever after having one as a family member all winter long. Kisses - May Ling Su

Crazy looking spider? Hmmmm...it seems my shapeshifting skills are still as sharp as ever.

Believe me, you would know if I were in your bed...remember, I devour my mate...and from what I understand, that's not something that is easily forgotten once I've left the web.

LOL! Great post!!! I was away from home for near a week recently and when I returned my garage door would not open. I got frustrated trying to figure out what was wrong with the dang thing and finally on the little area that has the beam (that's as technical as I get) I found a huge Black Widow egg sack. I don't normally kill things for no reason, but it had to go. The house and shed has Black Widows lurking all over the place! Yikes!!!

That is weird that you saw a crazy looking spider after posting this. LOL! Very cool!!!

Hello again..and just how often do you use your bed, darlin? For a masive spider like that to have made a home there?

It was a good thing you did, sparing it's life. I always release spiders, knowing all the time they'll scurry back inside, asap, there furry little legs working overtime, to get them there. They kill horrible, bacteria-laden flies, well the ones in this country do. I don't think any of them are harmful to Uman Beans over here, though, so that surely makes a difference.

Luv n stuff {=} Susie {=}

I've got two beds. one made entirely out of pillows and blankets that I'm sitting on right now in front of the computer and another that is a real bed. The spider was in the one I sleep in when I conk out in front of the computer which is essentially the floor but I still think of it as my bed. In the warm time of the year all sorts of small creatures somehow get into the house.

I sometimes hear the same thing said about being bisexual but being hermaphroditic would actually be a dimension larger than that. Or something like that.

I sort of like that quote of someone famous who said "bisexuals are simply the sexually greedy"

Maybe they truly can "fuck themselves".

The most interesting insect that ever made it into the house , besides the two varieties of scorpions that have made it in, is a millipede. Those things are literally the luxury stretch limo version of the the pill bug/sow bug/roly poly bug. And actually they are not technically insects but I think they are classed in the arachnid family but are more like land living crustaceans than spiders. But I'm guessing that crabs abd lobsters are sort of like giant sea spiders and they are also crustaceans.

Land lubber invertabrates?

Well I do occasionally ask if you'll lovingly suck the totality of the vital fluids from my system so I'm hoping maybe some day you'll take me up on that.

I let a black widow make a web in my room once when I was a kid. My brother got really angry with me for simply leaving it there though once he discovered it it.

Oh no! yet another missed comment! I won't go to hell for this one though.

Hey SusieQ!

I think size is all relative in this case. Compared to a walnut sized spider a tarantula is monstrous in size but next to a king crab that same tarantula is dwarfed. I won't even mention the spider mite or the Giant Squid.

PS. I will visit your blog quite soonly
