Day 247 of retirement » 30 Spider Boy-L1292562

On the Ro-Ro back to Marinduque there were these two boys who were Spider wrestling. They had these brown fat spiders stored in match boxers that were about the size of a fingernail. They would place one on each end of the stick and the spiders would then advance and then wrestle each other. The loser is the one that drops from the stick on a strand of web. The boys would then grab the web and place the spider back on the stick or back in the matchbox for another bout later.
The spiders didn’t appear to be hurt by this as they fought many battles over the three-hour trip. As we were about to disembark the Ro-Ro one of the boys came up to me and showed me his spiders all fit and well and still very active.
