    Maybe I can’t count (a possibility I’ll always credit), but that looks more like a USB crab than a spider.

  • Collin Cunningham

    Though it’s body and stalked eyes look pretty ‘crabby’ – it has 8 legs like a spider, crabs generally have 10.

  • MÃ¥rten

    I count 6 legs, 2 claws and 2 stalked eyes.

  • Collin Cunningham

    true, but pretty sure those claws count as legs

    either way – how many USB ports do spiders normally have?
