Having coffee with a blue tarantula

Yup. That pretty much sums it up for me this morning. I had to go and pick an article about spiders, biomimicry and nanotechnology first thing this morning. Nothing like challenging oneself right out of the box, eh?

I never realized there were so many different kinds of blue tarantulas! Evolution is definitely strange, especially when it’s convergent. And even more so when you factor in humans trying to use it for their own benefit.

Cool….but strange! Ouch…my brain hurts.
