Great pictures. Showing more of the beast in the second is the one I like.

I will pass on this recipe.

I will still use chicken instead.

Nick,
I am glad to see that you have posted the live spider version of this recipe.
It' important to note though that the correct way to serve this soup is to not put the live spiders in until the broth has cooled to room temperature. This is the Gazpacho style of Tasmanian Spider Soup. The spiders can now jump from tooth to tooth removing any unsightly corn skins that may be clinging there. Just FYI.

Jazz, those are really excellent pictures of a very cool looking spider.
Nice work.

Nick, I think smac is correct about allowing it to cool to room temperature plus the it does give you the added benefit of not having to floss:arrow::arrow::!:

thanks every one ...with out the help of the cool guys on this forum i never would have dreamed of taking those shots..BTW...
ancient folklore says that the fangs of the tasmanian jumping spider were used as a powerful aphrodisiac ...when consumed in large enough doses it induces a hallucinagenic trance followed by coma and paralysis..lasting for several hours...lol
