Sorry to be one of those historical nit-pickers, but there’s a minor error in your blurb. Louise Thompson, discoverer of the spider, was actually a married woman in her 30s. The spider was in her bedside alarm clock. The girl in the photo is Mary Louise, who was Louise Thompson’s daughter (but wasn’t the discoverer of the spider).

I believe the freedom faction and the domestication faction were mollified only when the daughter was fed to the spider.

A good thing Robert the Bruce wasn’t looking at that spider, or he’d never have gotten off his arse.
