Spider Hole

This spider lives in a solution hole. Solution holes are frequent in the Everglades, and are made as rainwater mixed with the acidic residue of decayed plants erodes the local limestone. There are gator-sized solution holes but this particular hole is merely spider-sized. It will probably get bigger with time.
