Question with 1 note

bogleech said: Yeah I didn't think they should use a real arthropod, just that I'd have expected a more exaggerated creature when they already bothered to animate it and give it sound effects like something unreal anyway :b

well hey, let’s be real, is there any way to improve on the design of an amblypygid for a cool looking creepy crawly

Only FIVE DAYS LEFT of Open Squish Bug Round 2! My Rainbow Jumping Spider (Maratus robinsoni) is very very very close to the goal, but it will not make it without your help!

It must end with an average score of at least 3.90 to be produced as a plush. Please vote 5! Every single 5 vote helps! If you’ve already voted, the best thing to do is share with your friends! It needs those extra points, right now!

Because you all been so helpful for the past week while I’ve been raving about this, here’s another bonus: Rainbow Jumping Spider avatars which are free to use wherever you might wish to represent yourself with a glittery arachnid ~

We can make giant colorful stuffed spiders be a thing that exists for everyone!

frick i have too many fuckyeah blogs lol

life update 2:

When we got home from visiting family in Iowa one of our Amblypigids had molted and her tank is suddenly crawling with these terrestrial nemertean worms!

I found these worms every once in a while around Florida but they never seemed to take to captivity and I eventually gave up trying to raise them. Figures I’d end up breeding them by pure accident.

It’s possibly because this tank has very deep soil with a sort of “water table,” fungi, springtails, earthrworms, snails and isopods all multiplying in it. I’m not sure which one these guys have been feeding on, but the isopods sure seemed to dwindle…

Some Nemertean worms grow like 50 feet long in the deep ocean and eat the flesh of dead whales!

is that a harry potter bug???

Yes, plant-sex, they did indeed use a CGI variation of Amblypygi in “Goblet of Fire.”  That was the first thought that went through my head, too lol

Yeah, they rather oddly used CG to render a real arthropod at actual size, then have it move, screech and titter like a fictional creature. Like, they may as well have just made up some sort of fantasy bug.

It’s entertaining, though, when people thought that was exactly what they did and then see the real thing.

They’re also known as tail-less whip scorpions or whip spiders. They don’t have silk, venom, acid or any other biological weapons Arachnids are famous for, just sensitive feeler-like limbs and enlarged, snapping mouth parts!

i’m actually pretty happy they went with cgi considering the thing got killed (yeah, with magic, but i’d expect your average studio to have just doused it with pesticide and filmed the results); usually the fate of invertebrates on movie sets is pretty grim :(
