Be Kind – Put us Outside! (video)

I’ve wanted to create this cartoon FOREVER. Most critters are harmless and simply want to live out their little lives in peace.
Spiders are particularly special to me because they are truly magnificent creatures.

Without spiders, insect populations would explode, decimating our food crops, and ecological balance would be severely compromised.

7 Things you probably don’t know about spiders:

1. Spiders avoid people and are much more afraid of us than we are of them.
2. Spiders are not bloodsuckers and they do not feed on humans.
3. The majority of spiders are not toxic to humans.
4. Many spiders are not capable of piercing human flesh.
5. Only about a dozen of the approximately 40,000 spider species worldwide can cause serious harm.
6. Spider silk is stronger than steel and more elastic than nylon. The ancient Greeks used spider silk to stop bleeding wounds.
7. Many scientists believe that without spiders, the human race would die within months because of lack of food and insect borne diseases.

    Thank you for the info most of which I knew because I LOVE SPIDERS! I have never been afraid of them and I have had a pet one – not confined in any way. It lived above my bed and I fed it flies and mosquitos. However in Australia we do have 3 of the not-so-nice ones, funnel webs(which we don’t yet have where I live), red backs and white tails. I just put them outside if I find them. I love your cartoons and videos, being an animal and bird lover! 😘

    It’s a race between me and the dogs, simply because they are curious and can accidentally squash the wee fellas(or ladies😊)
    I tend to leave house spiders in the house, they gobble up fruit flies and all manner of nasties.
    I’m not keen on them being on the ceiling though, I remove them and pop them in a house plant,lol.
    Thank you for your beautiful art and posts, your the best.xxxx😘😘
