Explore a open Kmart...much harder to find

[–]shamls 31 points32 points  (6 children)

Those are known as mold spiders

[–]ProcrastinatorSkyler[S] 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Thank you, I tried looking up info on what caused this spider to be like this but couldn't find much. I can't find much about mold spiders either, but found similar pictures. I'm guessing the mold formed on the spider and then the mold froze, creating this. Thanks for giving me a bit more information about this.

Found this while googling mold spider and it is thoroughly terrifying. There are other links too which states that the fungus eats them up from the inside.

Wow, that's pretty interesting, and disturbing. Poor spiderbro. Thanks for sharing.

Read up on those spores that grow out of ants brains, pretty creepy too. Poor bastards.

[–]shamls 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I honestly know nothing about it and thought they were spiders that lived in the mold, based on what I heard from an old roommate.

When I worked for dish network I had to spend alot of time in basments. Saw a lot of those basterds...

You should burn them as well; you can never be too cautious with spiders

[–]ken_in_nm 6 points7 points  (1 child)

There are two spiders in the pic.

[–]ProcrastinatorSkyler[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

There's actually three if you look close enough.

Do you have more pictures of the abondoned K-Mart? Sounds interesting

[–]ProcrastinatorSkyler[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It wasn't all that interesting to be honest. It's completely empty, just tons of bird shit and a cat. The echo was pretty insane though. Most interesting thing there was that abandoned van out back. It's registration expired in 2013 so it's been there since at least then. Roof access would probably be kind of interesting, but the roof hatch was padlocked shut.

If you want to see more interesting abandoned places, check my submission history for some pictures.

Poor spider. I feel sorry for spiders in general

[–]SendMeYourSoul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Such good creatures, but unfortunately they look disturbing (usually).

[–]GeorgeFromManagement 0 points1 point  (2 children)

A creature that looks mildly terrifying yet is one of the single most important predators in any ecosystem.

[–]StupidQuestionAskers 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How so? If there weren't spiders, wouldn't another predator evolve to catch all the extra bugs?

[–]LucianoThePig 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think that's how that works. With no spiders killing them, flies and other spider-prey would multiply and multiply and multiply

[–]throoway4 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Creepy , good basis for a movie plot.

[–]MrsTurtlebones 5 points6 points  (0 children)

With ridiculous lines in the trailer such as,

He came for the Blue Light Special, but little did he know that all sales were final!

[–]NotChedco 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Dude, I was eating.

[–]Strykerz3r0 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Then why in the world would you click on a post that clearly says 'Frozen Spider' in the title? :)

[–]QuadleQ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's a Frostbite Spider. Look for the claw, that'll open the door. You'll have to fight the big draugr to get some loot. Probably wouldn't be worth it if you didn't get a shout.

He never did finish that web.

[–]MrDiamond100 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a bit more than MILDLY interesting

[–]wil_i_am_scared_of_u 1 point2 points  (4 children)

The second best kind of spider is a frozen spider.

[–]megles7187 4 points5 points  (0 children)

frozens not enough they need to burn that kmart down now. I get a chill looking at those things

[–]Helverus 0 points1 point  (2 children)

What is the best?

[–]wil_i_am_scared_of_u 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Burned to the ground, along with everything, of course. Lol
