Did the computer force you to choose a U.S. state? That happens sometimes. We know Ecuador isn’t in Massachusetts. 🙂
Actually i was using chrome in my android phone, so maybe it’s a platform related issue. Kind of baffling since in the homepage it says the website has “pictures of spiders all over the world”.

That isn’t actually a physical place of its own. It… Read more »
