Puppy sized spider. It's called a Goliath Birdeater.

The entomologist who blogged about the goliath birdeater got "hate mail and death threats" for writing that he euthanized that spider. Part of the reason why is that Piotr Naskrecki got very badly misinterpreted:
Quote:
Birdeaters are not very common spiders. “I’ve been working in the tropics in South America for many, many years, and in the last 10 to 15 years, I only ran across the spider three times,” Naskrecki.
[bold added]

At my first link above he corrected this:
Quote:
SIMON: And I guess we should clear this up too, the South American Goliath birdeater is not an endangered species?

NASKRECKI: Oh, God, no. No, it's a very, very common species. It's actually very common in the pet trade. I went to a local pet store to buy some dog food, and the first thing I see is that Goliath being on sale. And they are in no way endangered. What is endangered is their habitat.

What he meant in saying "I only ran across the spider three times" was that he personally had seldom seen this species of spider in the wild.

No, my fiancée was one of the teens being photographed, not the person taking the pics.

I don't understand–

Was she your fiancée circa 2005, or is she your fiancée and the picture was taken circa 2005?

Penguins: Spy In The Huddle

This is a great series that has been shown on PBS recently. They have adult cams, chick cams (hidden wheels, was tried to be adopted), rock cams and egg cams. The egg cam was attacked by a predator. They even had one that could swim.

Why bother making them nearly perfect circles?

Animals grazing: the more square feet the better.

Fences: measured in cost per linear foot.

Circles: shape with lowest perimeter:area ratio. (More square feet of grazing per foot of fence.)

the article points out that they're in locations across the mideast, in every sort of landscape, including desert and rocky mountain areas ... animal penning doesn't seem to fit

I think it's pretty obvious. They are places where Mohammed practiced on hills before moving on to mountains.

They were nomads. Moving herds from one place to another.
