Challenge #01774-D313: Tiny New Friend

Giant sapient space spiders meet tiny Earth spiders -- TheDragonsFlame

You need a great amount of arachnophilia to deal with the H'nuff'ruff. The mere sight of having a gigantic spider sneak up on one is not for the faint of heart. Fortunately, Sally thought they were cute, and wore a speech-to-palp-sign translator almost permanently on her brow. She also had a palp-sign-to-text translator permanently running on her eyescreen.

So she definitely did not jump when tapped delicately on the shoulder by a claw attached to a gigantic, hairy, spider arm. She even knew who it was. "Yes, Filestra?" That was not, strictly speaking, her name, but it was as close as she can get.

"Human Sally, I have found a baby," said Filestra via the translator app. Another raised limb had a very small spider dangling from its own thread. "It needs medical care, it's so tiny."
