I’ve looked to see what my little alien being was called and have seen old posts of fuzzy pictures. So i figured for the sake of science and imagination! This guy was hanging from a web. I’m almost positive it’s dead.

    I gotta comment on this! My husband and I are house hunting, and viewed an old Victorian home this morning. The basement was literally covered in these! There had to be a hundred or more. And the cobwebs were so thick. I thought they were all dead, but now I’m not positive, and I’m a tad freaked out!
