Oh, contemplation.  We weren’t sure what to do.  We knew it was cruel to keep the spiders locked up but some of us wanted to give them to Tuck but most of us wanted to thank them for their scientific gifts and let them be free.  So outside we went.  And as we moved the tanks, the most amazing thing happened, dozens of fruit flies freaked out and flew right into the big web in the tank and we got to watch inches away as the spider wrapped them all up just like we had been reading about.  And we also found mama, she was hiding the entire time, napping we suppose.
