I was told by some (hickish/hillbilliy) friends that there is a breed of spider called a Spriket, which is a cross between a spider and a cricket. I told them spiders eat crickets, not mate with them as I was laughing when they were telling me about it and both had a very serious face.
So is there such a thing called a Spricket?

Well, Mr.Cat, wikipedia says there is such a thing called a spricket but that it is type of cricket, not one that part cricket, part spider.

I lived along the river a few years back and there were some seriously gross bugs that I'd never seen before. My neighbor and I called them "death bugs" as neither one of us had seen such things. Later on we heard they were called "sprickets" and they did look like a cross of a spider and a cricket. I'm happy to say that since living their I have not seen one since!

I’ve never seen a Spricket nor have I seen a Jackelope. I’m worried that life is passing me by and I’m left out.
