Your half-fortnight's worth of arachnid art, goings-on, natural history, and taxonomy! https://oulipo.link/YuHmV4

Ask this Oulipian anything about arachnids!
Fossil scorpions from Wisconsin go back 430 million sun-orbits, possibly among first land animals: https://oulipo.link/1gcKps

I will try to toot an oulipo-compliant summary or two or four.
