Milwaukee pet store
When you go into this Milwaukee pet store you might be surprised at the lack of variety you will find inside. That's because they specialize in spiders. Although spiders have occupied an honored place in various mythologies, their widespread unsavory reputation in modern times probably results from their tendency to lurk in dark places, their often grotesque appearance, and a gross exaggeration of their toxicity. As predators on insects and other small animals, spiders are generally highly beneficial to humans, although some feed on important plant pollinators such as bees. They also serve asfor other animals, most notably for certain wasps that paralyze the spiders and lay eggs to hatch on the paralyzed body. Spiders have separate sexes, and the eggs have to be fertilized. The genital openings of both male and female are located on the abdomen. After sperm are transferred to the female, they can be stored in her body for an extended period. Courtship behavior is often complicated. Males may use draglines to detect and recognize mates, or they may signal their approach by plucking on the female's web. In spiders with well-developed eyes, complex mating displays have evolved that are associated with bright color patterns. Male spiders are sometimes much smaller than the females. The dwarfing of males is pronounced when the females tend to remain in one place. Males mature earlier, and the sooner the male gets to a female the more apt he is to reproduce. Spider eggs are protected in cocoons. The female may guard the cocoons or carry them about. In some spiders the hatchlings remain with the mother for an extended period and may be carried on its body.
