Uh-Oh: Spider Repairing Broken Leg With Silk

This is a short video of a spider that got a leg smashed while being trapped in a glass cup to be taken outside. So what does it do? Spins itself a cast out of silk. YAY, we're all gonna die! It's kind of amazing this spider can repair its own leg but when I come home with a broken arm my mom freaks out and wants to go to the doctor and "a professional opinion" and "x-rays" and "antibiotics" when I know for a fact my dad has all the tools we need to fix it in the garage. I'm thrifty. Plus already have a stash of pain pills from the time my brother got his wisdom teeth taken out and I replaced his pills with Skittles I'd licked all the color off.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Stan, who tried repairing a broken leg with yarn with much less functional results.
