When you think of vegetarians, spiders probably don’t come to mind. But there’s one species of spider that snacks on plants, only hunting occasionally. This should not shock us. This spider is just a reminder that creatures with predatory features could have devoured veggies instead.
You see, God originally created man and the animals to be vegetarian. It wasn’t until after sin that animals turned to carnivory as well as predation.
And spiders aren’t the only reminder of the past. There are other animals today like fruit bats, and giant pandas that eat mainly plants.
These vegetarians remind us of the past and point us toward a future when it will be this way again.
