Yep, that about sums up my thoughts, haha.

I guess it is kind of sweet... if I have to find the good. Insects, spiders and scorpions and I do not mesh well.

Key Lime Pie! That sounds really good right now. With a side of chocolate-covered scorpion.

But if they HAVE to be alive, they must be far, far, far away!

I think it's delightfully creepy lol I don't find scorpions cute but I find the juxtaposition between our human notions of "aww it's nurturing its babies" and "omfg its so horrid" funny/interesting/...enchanting? Something like that but I cannot explain it well.

What skeeves me out more are these toads:

The little toads hatch in the mother's back, basically. It's just nasty lol Fascinating, but nasty.

I voted indifferent, but the longer I look at it, the more I like it.

I like most insect type critters, with the exception of scorpions, so not cute at all. I do think that it's kind of cool that they nurture their babies though. I don't like scorpions, but I respect them as valuable parts of the ecosystem and have to give any mama that would tolerate that many babies riding on her back all day props.

I don't think it's cute, but it doesn't bother me.

Nope, looks too much like a spider with little spiders all over it.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Dude. Not cool.

And last night I murdered an extraordinary large wolf spider who had hundreds of babies on her back without mercy.
