Wolsey Spider (Tegenaria parietina)


Dr  Abe V Rotor

Assignment: Advanced Ecology, UST Graduate School


It's Wolsey spider, after the Cardinal,
who froze before this poor harmless thing,
yet he stood tall before Henry, the eight;
he lost to both, his head to the king.



It is sometimes known as the Cardinal Spider because of the legend that Cardinal Wolsey was terrified by the sudden presence of this strange creature in his room. He froze almost to death.


Trivia: How many legs has a spider? Will the lost legs of this spider regenerate? Spiders are beneficial to us and the environment, how? Write an essay about this topic.
