This is a spider made from an Oreo cookie. They are pretty easy to make with pretzel sticks and a dab of icing. But nature has its own Oreo spider. National Geographic wildlife photographer Joel Sartore explains.
A species of trapdoor spider, the oreo spider does not spin webs, but instead, burrows, using its hardened abdominal disc to plug the entry to its underground home. A member of the Cyclocosmia genus, these rare spiders are the smaller, less hairy cousins of tarantulas. pic.twitter.com/LNp2Lajh5N— Joel Sartore (@joelsartore) October 13, 2021
Cyclocosmia has a pretty fancy trapdoor, if you know what I'm saying. Now we have to wonder if the cookie took its look from the spider. Nah, we know that Oreo cookies took their look (and everything else) from Sunshine Hydrox cookies. -via Fark
