A seriously scary odd couple...how tarantulas and frogs help each other survive 🕷️🐸

source: reddit

Believe it or not but these freaky looking the Colombian lesserblack tarantulas form long lasting relationships with small amphibious creatures like the doting humming frog instead of munching down on them. Rather than eating these tasty little frogs - which they totally could if they wanted to - the giant tarantulas keep their frog buddies around because they eat the ants that eat tarantula eggs. It’s a classic animal kingdom trade off. On top of getting to live, the cute little frogs get to eat the leftovers that tarantulas don’t finish and they have a giant protector that lords over them.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
