Privacy Please! Spiders Get It On In a Funnel of Love

Two funnel web spiders were caught on camera sharing an intimate moment on January 11. The Australian Reptile Park’s spiders were filmed mating in what was an ‘exciting’ affair for the zoo’s keepers. “This is an exciting time as it’s the first time the Australian Reptile Park has bred funnel web spiders. Over the last week we have paired spiders 80 times," head of spiders Kane Christensen said. “There have been 20 sightings of sperm deposits from the 80 pairings, which we hope will culminate in 20 egg sacs over the next few months.” Funnel web mating can be a life or death situation for a male spider, as the male has to convince the female not to eat him. The park breeds funnel web spiders as part of its antivenom program. Credit: Australian Reptile Park via Storyful

Most recently, three protesters were killed in anti-government demonstrations in Omdurman on January 9, the Sudan News Agency reported. Officials estimated that 24 people had been killed in the protests since December 27; however, an Amnesty International report put the number of fatalities at 37.
