March 13th, 2018: Bunny Harvestman

Hey, it’s Bugs Bunny’s long-legged cousin. No, I lied.
OK, it’s a bunny looking spider. Nope, I lied again.

Kay explains that despite this fanciful creature's spider-bunny appearance, it is not actually a spider (or a bunny, for that matter), but rather a daddy longlegs. Coming from the family of Cosmetidae in the order of Opiliones (colloquially known as harvestmen or daddy longlegs), they may superficially seem similar to spiders, however they are not closely related to spiders' order Araneae.

He adds, "Contrary to a common belief Harvestman do not have venom glands and are absolutely harmless. Harvestmen have been around for at least 400 million years and lived even before the dinosaurs."
There is a video of this critter on the tube.

It is extraordinary. It looks like some kind of cute bat-meets-bunny being carted around on a surreal leggy machine. Seeing wonders of nature as remarkable as this little daddy longlegs can have a profound effect – and if nothing else, instill an appreciation of the incredible diversity of flora and fauna quietly doing their fabulous things deep in the rainforest of Ecuador.
Of course not having been to Ecuador, I can’t swear that a gang of Bunny Huntsmen haven’t kidnapped Kay’s children to
force her to convince us these are not eight foot high carnivores.

looks like it's trying to give itself a BJ in a yoga class.
