How does a spider have 3 legs? My life is a lie.

I was confused too so I watched the YouTube video and paused at the end, there are 4 legs on each side. The two in the middle a kept real close to each other and look like one.

Wait... Serious question, do certain male spiders have only six legs?

Yeah I thought that was a little suspicious too, then I watched the full video. If you slow the speed down to half speed, you can definitely see that there are eight legs and that the are moving.

What do you think?

I don't know to slow mo it, or maybe not an option on my tablet?
But looking at it there, those babies look real. So I posted it on a Dischord channel with some Aussie friends so they can get back to me on it.

Meanwhile, I looked it up and found this which verifies those things are real and can live in houses:

Suddenly I'm very thankful for the brutal cold we're having here, because that there is heart attack city material,,,

There should be 3 vertically arranged dots in the top right corner of your video. Tap that and you can select playback options.

Changing the playback speed is really helpful, sometimes I speed it up when watching a discussion and people are talking slowly.

Yeah it's cold here in the east coast too, where are you at?

Got it, thanks. That is freaky. Odd that the camara didn't notice momma till after (or maybe was saving her for last), but I saw the legs move. I guess the front 2 are harder to see because of the angle.

New York. Lucky we didn't get the snow we were supposed to, but it was horrible yesterday. Today too, but not as bad temp wise

Oh yeah you guys got some brutal cold temps up there.

Yeah the back legs are the only ones that were really obvious that they were moving. That cameraman is braver than I

Oh, I read what you said about the middle legs now. I erred on my guess about the front ones. I ain't checking again right now cuz I dreamt about giant hissing roaches today and I'm wigging out,,,
