Two species of spider have been discovered building life-like spider effigies from dead insects, leaves, & twigs. What’s remarkable is that one species is in Peru, the other in the Philippines. Scientists think the spider sculptures either help lure prey or scare off predators. Perhaps the spiders are just very lonely. Or even more disturbing, the effigies are shrines of worship. So far, “terrific pig” hasn’t been seen written in the web.
