Smart Thinking: A Bathroom Designed To House Whip Spiders

May 21, 2018


Because why replace the toilet paper on the holder when you can just set a roll on the back of the toilet tank like my roommate does, this is a recent post from on Facebook featuring, and I quote, "Such a cool bathroom idea!" The bathroom has been outfitted with cork bark tubes to comfortably house a bunch of whip spiders. Whip spiders, also known as tailless whip scorpions, are arachnids of the order Amblypygi , which lack venomous fangs but can grab things with their mouth-feet when provoked, resulting in "thorn-like puncture injuries." Perfect for a bathroom! I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner. Granted I prefer a roach bathroom, but they're already there and I like to pretend I'm cool with it.

Keep going for several more shots.





Thanks to KH, who agrees that bathroom was definitely already scary enough without the spiders.

    I had a bunch of these hanging around my outdoor kitchen when I was travelling. Scared the shit out of me at first, but the guy that owned the place told me that they eat roaches. I got to really like them, they're the fun kind of aggressive. If you're in the room with them they would sort of really slowly move away from you. If you put a stick in front of them, they would sprint surprisingly fast at it and start snapping at it with their claws. Nobody is gonna believe me, but you'd like them if you got to know them. Way cooler than the scorpion infestation in the bedroom/bathroom.

    It's pretty cool for an amateur I guess.

    I prefer my love dungeon (basement) that I affectionately filled with whips AND chains spiders though. Each one is an individual shade of gray.

    So what seedy gas station is that bathroom in?

  • The_Wretched

    They could have invested in cleaning it instead. Also, toiler paper.

  • Bling Nye

    I think they were hoping the spiders would clean it, like Amano shrimp in an aquarium. If only.

  • The_Wretched

    At the rate that bathroom is going, they might be able to grow shrimp in it too.

  • Eric Ord

    There's toilet paper right on the tank, bro bro! You missed it just like you miss the wry wit of my posts

    PRO: No one would ever drop a stinky deuce in your bathroom

    CON: ... you would also never be able to drop a stinky deuce in your bathroom

  • Frédéric Purenne

    CON : The deuce would be dropped on the floor right in front of the bathroom.

  • James Mcelroy

    And possibly in a trail leading away from the bathroom.
