Protecting kids!

Vi har vel alle fra tid til annen vært litt engstelige for hva barn kan rote seg opp i? Kan de komme i en situasjon de ikke kan håndtere? Eller kan de utsettes for fare? Bli skadet, eller endog kanskje miste livet?
Nå kan vi i menneskenes verden ikke alltid benytte ‘naturens løsninger’, men det er likevel intreressant å se hvordan andre skapninger på vår jord har løst en slik problemstilling?

We have all been kind of worries at one time or another about the doings or whereabouts of our children? Where are they? What are they doing? May they safely handle the situation they’re in? Or could they get in harms way? Getting hurt, or even lose their lives?
In the world of humans we can’t always adopt the ways of nature, but it may be intereresting to observe how other species have solved such problems?
Picture 7100I nattens mulm og mørke kom jeg over denne edderkoppen som hadde funnet sin løsning:  Den hadde laget sitt eget mobile barneværelse som den til enhver tid rullet med seg der den gikk! Ingen kunne komme ut, og ingen inn!  Denne ‘ballen’ han inneholde  dusinvis av små edderkopp-unger til tross for at størrelsen ikke var avskrekkende. (Sammenlign med edderkoppen) 

In the dark of night I came across this little spider, which seemed to have found its solution to the problem: A nursery made of spider web containing dozens of small spider babies. Nobody allowed neither ‘in’ nor ‘out’. And the spider mother carries (or rolled) the nursery where ever she went!  And it wasn ‘t all that large. (Compare size to the spider itself)

Men det finnes andre arter som lager betydelig større ‘barneværelser’, men som da ikke lar seg flytte på. Da snakker vi ‘hundrevis av edderkopp-unger’!

There are other species making  a more permanent type of lairs. Then we are talking  of ‘several hundres’ of spider babies!

    Great photo, but I wouldn’t want to get to close to her.

      Hi, Susan –
      She’s probably one protective and fierce lady when it comes to her young ones (like most mothers are), but – she’s definitely not poisonous! 😀
