If you woke up with your mind in the body of a beetle, would you try to carry on existing in human society or would you join other beetles?

I find spiders fascinating. Do you like or know about spiders also? I know they aren't insects, but I assumed you'd like them. If so what's your favourite species and why?
Over the whole of spiders, I love the jumping spiders of salticadae. They are so beautiful with their big and an look like mini tarantulas. So I guess my fav is the peacock jumping spider! Awesome little guys with great quirks!

How do you sex a tarantula?

Do male and female spiders vary in temperament at all?

Are spiders actually more scared of you than you are of it?
There's a huge, grey-ish spider hiding underneath my bed, which is weird, as I thought spiders preferred to be up in the corners of the room making webs and whatnot.

Well, on a tarantula on the underside, they have a back section, "bum" abdomen which is connected to their heads, by their back legs, tarantulas have gentians, on males the have a little hole or arch and have tiny spinnerettes by the side, on females they don't have a hole but more a slit and no extra spinnerettes!
Here's a female Curlyhair!
So as you see, just before their abdomen starts, their is a dark slit.
Males also have hooks on their front legs which they use to lift the female up when mating!
Females are more paccid than males, males just want to mate!

Most sarcastic, probably the damsel fly! Or more so the praying mantis!

Yes, spiders are more scared of us, that's why they run from us than to us, though tarantulas will accept the challenge and may stick up. As for under the bed, they prefer dark and hot places, he may come out at night to lay his web in the corner of the room, he won't harm you though! Just remove those nasty mozzsies!

Nope! Spiders just don't like hot damp/ moist conditions as high humidity. Spiders are more scared of us and so wouldn't venture into our mouths. They'll usually find a dark, dry corner of the room to lay their net! It was actually a rumour spread by a college for an experiment to see how far it would go, but it hasn't had the best effect on the reputation of spiders! So you need not worry, and have and will never eat a spider, only intentionally!
