Spider King Shield ( And his pet )
I found this topic very difficult in regards of the materials I could use.I brainstorming about what a spider could use as a shield and not be a leaf or a bark ? I came out with the idea of an Almond shell , perfect shape, size and hard enough to be used as a shield .
But because just one almond shell is not enough our Spider King used leafs and some mushrooms to decorate his shield and at the same time to be a way to carry his beloved Pet , a tiny peacock spider .
