Cuddles: A great name for a Spider! The team at Critters Up Close decided on this name to encourage the audience to get involved without actually knowing who Cuddles is. Do we think she is cuddly? Absolutely! She likes to hang out throughout the day, patiently waiting in her web-lined burrow for dinner to arrive. We know that once audience members meet Cuddles, they will be intrigued and who knows, maybe even change their opinion of this beautiful, important and misunderstood critter.
