Today DH and DD2 were clearing out the shed which is about to be demolished. A large spider ran out and DH said it winked at DD.

Now we know most spiders have 8 eyes but we are arguing about whether a winking spider would use 4 of its 8 eyes to wink (obvious and correct answer) or wink with 7 leaving only one open (DH misguided here).

Who is right?

I Think it would wink with one eye, leaving seven open...

Alpaca is right wink

I'm with Alpaca wink

Cacofonix Sun 25-Feb-18 15:14:06

Oh no! Never considered this option.

A hate to give a dull answer but spiders don’t have eyelids so are thwarted in their dreams of winking.

Spiders have 8 eyes?

Waddlelikeapenguin Sun 25-Feb-18 15:21:09

7open 1 closed if they had eyelids

I agree with alpaca. 🕷

FourEyesGood Sun 25-Feb-18 15:40:03

I agree with Alpaca too.
To wink = to close one eye briefly.

DP, local spider expert, said the same as Slime, "None, they don't have eyelids"

Cacofonix Sun 25-Feb-18 16:06:32

No eyelids! What strange world is this?

I wish I hadn't clicked on this as I'm petrified of spiders and now I can't get that image out of my head 😂
