Have you guys tried touching your C.Darlingi's horn?
Sorry, just curious.
Yes i have, why? If the answer you are looking for is, is it hard or soft, then its hard.
What is the purpose of the horn?
It's a speial sensory organ they use to hear the sound of one hand clapping.
ha ha :slapsknee:
So is it one of those kind of things that just no one knows?
Nobody really knows. I've heard a few different theories but AFAIK nothing has been proven.
Did she react in a certain way like, going into a murderous rampage or something?
This link should help you
"which is thought to aid the spider with increased food storage, much needed in the dry scrubland where they naturally exist (note that the horn is less developed in mature males)."
Isn't their stomach in their abdomen though? Not their uh ... Carapace? (had to look that up lol)
The expression you're looking for is prosoma (also called cephalothorax, which is incorrect BTW), the carapace is just what's on the top of it. The sucking stomach is located in the prosoma, they also store food in the prosoma. If you're interested in learning about digestion in spiders, click here.
Oh I see. Thank you for the link. Will read.
I have never heard that it was used for extra storage? It is located right where the central apodeme is normally located. The central apodeme is one of the main attachment points for a Ts muscles. I thought that perhaps the horn allowed for more surface area for muscle attachment.
LOL. I thought it was an antenna to communicate with the mothership and doubles to improve the reception of XM satellite radio stations. A huge improvement over the previous internal antennae.
they are just try to full you........ thats exactly what them horns are for........lol
Ah, jokes on me then. Ethan is a craft little devil.
