I’ve been meaning to draw this comic for a while.
When I first arrived to Tottori, I noticed something…
This is Joro-Gumo, scientific name Nephila Clavata. This is considered the queen of Japanese spiders, because it is found EEEEEEEeeeeeverywhere in the fall, from Hokkaido all the way to Okinawa. Even when I visited Tokyo, this spider was found in city far away from parks or nature of any kind.
With the onset of Winter, most of these spiders will die off, leaving their eggs to hatch late next summer.
Until next time, STAY AWESOME!
