Spiders is the debut album by Space, released on 16 September 1996, peaking at #5 in the UK Albums Chart, later going platinum. "Money", "Kill Me", "Neighbourhood", "Female of the Species","Me and You Versus the World" and "Dark Clouds" (the first 2 combined together as a double A-side) were released as singles.. It sold an estimated 800,000 copies...

The spider originally bearing the name "tarantula" was Lycosa tarantula, a species of wolf spider native to Mediterranean Europe.. The name derived from that of the southern Italian town of Taranto..Tarantulas comprise a group of often hairy and very large arachnids belonging to the Theraphosidae family of spiders, of which approximately 900 species have been identified.. This article only describes members of Theraphosidae, although some other members of the same suborder are commonly referred to as "tarantulas".. Most species of tarantulas are not dangerous to humans, and some species have become popular in the exotic pet trade..Tarantulas sizes range from as small as a fingernail to as large as a dinner plate when the legs are fully extended..Most species of North American tarantulas are brown. Elsewhere species have been found that variously display cobalt blue (Haplopelma lividum), black with white stripes (Aphonopelma seemanni), yellow leg markings (Eupalaestrus campestratus), metallic blue legs with vibrant orange abdomen and greenbottle blue (Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens). Their natural habitats include savanna, grasslands such as the pampas, rainforests, deserts, scrubland, mountains, and cloud forests.. They are generally classed among the terrestrial types.. They are burrowers that live in the ground..When theraphosids were encountered in the Americas, they were named "tarantulas", causing usage of the term to shift to the tropical spiders. Nevertheless, these spiders belong to the suborder Mygalomorphae, and are not closely related to wolf spiders..The name "tarantula" isis also mistakenly applied to other large-bodied spiders, including the purseweb spiders or atypical tarantulas, the funnel-webs (Dipluridae and Hexathelidae), and the "dwarf tarantulas". These spiders are related to tarantulas (all being mygalomorphs), but are classified in different families. Huntsman spiders of the family Sparassidae have also been termed "tarantulas" because of their large size. In fact, they are not related, belonging to the suborder Araneomorphae..The 8 legs, the two chelicerae with their fangs, and the pedipalps are attached to the prosoma..A tarantula has 4 pairs of legs and two additional pairs of appendages. Each leg has se7en segments which, from the prosoma out, are: coxa, trochanter, femur, patella, tibia, tarsus and pretarsus, and claw..2 or 2 retractable claws are at the end of each arm.. These claws are used to grip surfaces for climbing..After feeding, the leftovers are formed into a small ball by the tarantula and thrown away.. In a terrarium, they often put them into the same corner... fought the bulldozer's for the best part of the day.. We binned our large condom with legs... Couldn't move quick enough with them.. We heard contacts far on in the distance.. But they weren't shooting at us..Bush demanded that conflict must be swift and decisive..G will roast their stomachs in Ell at the hands of IRAqis...
