How Spiders became Small

A myth submitted to the site by Dylan

A long time ago in a continent called Africa lived the first spider named Anansi. Spiders in those days were as big as elephants and had eyes as big as footballs.

Now Anansi was a very naughty, greedy spider who lived in a Rainforest that was shining in the sunlight. One day he saw a herd of elephants walk by his invisible silk. . . . . . . . .
BOING! The herd of elephants were stuck!
Mm mm . . . exclaimed Anansi, elephant for tea.

After dinner he went to sleep in his gigantic web made of invisible silk. Meanwhile the God and the Goddess of the rainforest thought that something had to be done.

So the next morning he woke up and found himself really small, he saw leaves were GIGANTIC! His web was so big that he fainted off the web and that is how spiders became small.
