Child #3 (age 10) was getting ready for church recently and I heard him make an alarming noise. Not quite a scream. Not a yell. Obviously somewhat distressed.
Something bit his foot when he put his shoe on. Something the size of the baseball.
I should clarify, it didn’t bite him. He felt a pinching sensation on his toe through his sock but there were no puncture wounds.
This is a big but fairly harmless and secretive grass spider. It builds a funnel trap. Guess the shoe was a natural funnel. Dunno. But it was good times for a few minutes there.
Try not to think about this as you put your shoes on tomorrow. lol
