Young spiders often take refuge in moss, and should you bring a clump into the house, be prepared to have spiderlings and many other little hibernating creatures crawl out as warmth unlocks their muscles and increases their metabolism and consumption of oxygen. Macroinvertebrates are larger-than-microscopic invertebrate animals. Fortunately, just about all are harmless creatures and even the dangerous ones are more afraid of you than you are of them.

Spiders hatch from eggs, and the hatchlings look more or less like grown-up spiders, though sometimes their colors change as they age. Note the large ammonite on the right, the belemnites in the center, and the gastropods and bivalves on the seafloor.
