AWW! Real Spiders… in Wisconsin
I once had a biology teacher who said that everything worth studying needs a geek. He said, while they may be weird, snail geeks are the reason we know anything about snails. Snake geeks are probably the reason we have anti-venom. Neil Borlog, a wheat geek, won a Nobel prize as a result of his genetic work on wheat. Well, let me introduce you to Mike Draney, PhD at the University of Green Bay and member of the American Arachnological Society. He is, in the most hilarious way a spider geek. While this isn’t just about spiders, Draney does talk a little bit about all the Wisconsin Spiders he’s found around. He introduces us to a little Fishing spider he has laying around the lab and a cellar spider that he found in his house just that morning. Disgusting.
