I posted a photo a couple days ago of a spider I found in one of our bathtubs before I captured it and released it outside. Tonight, I had another, smaller spider in the same bathtub, so wrangled it into a glass, then let it go elsewhere. I didn't mention it at the time, but the first spider was missing one leg, thus it was a seven-legged spider, and assumed that it perhaps had lost it in a brew-ha-ha with another 'cootie' at one time... Then I noticed that tonight's spider was also missing a leg, and on the same side as the previous spider did... Soooooooo....what's going on here with this? Is it possibly an oddball mutation that is producing seven-legged spiders? Or is it simply a very strange coincidence that both spiders lost the same leg on the same side of their bodies through other means??? It's definitely not the same spider, as it's smaller, and I released the first one outdoors just a couple days ago. Call me 'perplexed' on this one.
