a great read.just found this link on another site.i especially like this passage haha
"One farmer reported that he noted one of his caged turkey chicks was missing. He then saw the chick at the end of a long groove in the dirt directed away from the cage. The chick appeared to be stuck to the ground. He found a large Selenocosmia stripping the skin from the leg of the bird as it tried to pull the bird down its burrow! Clearly, the spider had raided the turkey coup!"
