Thanks for sharing. A truly beautiful Poecilotheria picture. Several Poecilotheria species facing significant decline in the wild. Spiders are often overlooked by the public when considering endangered species, yet so important. #EverySpiderMatters ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ

Where does ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธย - spider emoji come from?

EmojiTerra

The spider emoji was approved by the Unicode Consortium in 2014 along with its compatriots the spider web and scorpion. The model for the emoji is the funnel web spider, a deadly creature native to Australiaย  whose venom is a mix of potent toxins that can reportedly kill a person in minutes.

This spider emoji varies across platforms from its terrifying realism with dimensional shading and pointy legs on Apple to a googly-eyed dangling arachnid on Google. Twitter is more abstract but still has enough detail to show pinchers, and Facebook is a bristling terror with slender claws.

Expect to see a spike in spider emoji use around Halloween because of its spooky associations.

Fans of the Marvel superhero Spiderman use the emoji in appreciation posts as well.

Finally, the feminist artist Louis Bourgeois was known for crafting enormous sculptures of spiders, so expect to find the emoji in posts about this pioneering contemporary artist.
