Today I learned that there are spiders that produce “milk”. While “milking spiders” is usually talking about collecting poison to create anti-dotes, this milk from spiders is used to raise their children, “spiderlings”, from offspring to a “mature” age. The little spiders lap up those little “milk” droplets from the underside of the spider mother. There is the theory those milk droplets may have evolved from “unfertilised eggs”.
Don’t judge my casual talk topics, they are amazing! ↩
