Self-aware spiders - great. I hate this. I hate it so much.

Actually, dogs have been using decoys of themselves in an attempt to get out of taking baths for centuries now.

@Geogypsy: Yup! Amazing little critters, eh?

There are many 'mimic` species of all kinds, but I cannot recall a creature that builds a decoy.

Wow, I've often admired spiders for their ingenuity but I had no idea that they possessed a high enough degree of self-awareness to create an image of themselves!
