A house spider looks kind of cute when it’s developing inside an egg

What a web of lies! Society has always had us believe that spiders are ugly and evil, but this picture proves otherwise.

While house spiders don’t look so adorable in the home, they do look kind of cute when developing inside of their eggs. This photo is exactly that — a microscopic view of a common house spider in embryo.

The image is from research that was conducted on the “molecular characterization and embryonic origin of the eyes in the common house spide Parasteatoda tepidariorum”. Get that?

Just forget it’s a hairy spider for a second and focus on that tiny little spidey hug it’s giving itself.
