This is a community to promote the awareness of the beauty and ecological importance of arachnids from all across the globe from spiders and scorpions to mites and ticks. This is also to share information about how 99 of arachnids are harmless to humans and to dispel misconceptions and myths about them. Were hoping to get more people interested and curious about arachnids by posting about them. Scientific articles photos artwork and sculptures arachnid-walks etc. All types of posts are welcome.
