spiders in the sand


This is a ghostly web-footed gecko, they can be found and perfectly camouflage among the powdery reddish sands of the Namib Desert, their primary habitat.These geckos have adapted their webbed feet not only to help them stay atop, but to bury beneath the dunes of the Namib Desert. Strictly nocturnal lizards, they spend the day in self-dug burrows and emerge at night to feed.

Their bloodshot-looking eyes are massively oversized to help them detect prey, which includes crickets, grasshoppers, and small spiders. They move surprisingly quickly across the sand, and adhesive pads on their toes make them excellent climbers.

People sometimes hunt these tiny lizards for food, and human encroachment is destroying some of its habitat. Their estimated lifespan in the wild is about five years.

The signs as types of Rainbow
  • Aries: Road spray rainbows, the sprays from car tires that pedestrians try to avoid.
  • Taurus: Secondary rainbows, the rainbows that are reflected twice inside of the rain drop. They have the colours reversed and appear next to the primary rainbow.
  • Gemini: Supremacy rainbows are also faint coloured arcs that seen directly under the primary or secondary bow, due to interference, making it seem longer.
  • Cancer: Fog bows/ White rainbows, are sometimes seen woven within clouds or fog.
  • Leo: Red rainbows, only appear Red, Pink and Orange and happen during sunset, when light travels a far distance to reach the waterdrops.
  • Virgo: Trapped-bows, when light appears to be trapped in glass, and reflects in various colours.
  • Libra: Surfbows, appear at the beach against the water, and glimmer against the sand, last for a long time.
  • Scorpio: Spider web-rainbows are when dew-covered spiders webs may show fragments of rainbows.
  • Sagittarius: Primary Rainbows, the usual red--violet arc that appears when sunlight follows rain.
  • Capricorn: Lunar Rainbows appear when the moon emits white light that raindrops can refract and reflect, they are faint and appear white or pale.
  • Aquarius: Spurious rainbows are faint coloured arcs that sometimes seen next to the primary or secondary bow, due to interference
  • Pisces: Mist-bows, which are created by your garden hose or any, water hose.

Janson: This isn’t The Maze, you won’t last a day in the scorch

Thomas: *loud sarcastic gasp*

Thomas: OH NO

Thomas: SAND. Sand compared to giant mutant fucking spiders that can scale walls like pros and sting you, causing you to rip your own face and your friends faces off, as well as that the maze is fucking terrorfying, dark, cold, full of dead gladers and fucking giant mutant robot spiders


I find myself not so fond of the Hissing Wastes. It’s not because of the rampant trios of Venatori, or the ever-present spiders and varghest. Or just all the Maker-forsaken sand.

No. The problem is the large luminous moon…

… which makes me just want to start up another run of Mass Effect.

And I can only take just so much heartache, so many tears.
