My name is Jordan Pendergast and I am a sophomore at UW-La Crosse. I am majoring in Biomedical Science, with the goal of becoming a Physician Assistant. I am also a student-athlete at UW-La Crosse, and play linebacker for the Eagles. I am from Sussex, Wisconsin and have an older brother, Chris, and younger sister, Bridget. My family is the most important part of my life, and I have been blessed to have their support in everything I do.

For this assignment, we were instructed to choose a venomous organism to research, and I came across the six-eyed sand spider or Sicarius hahni. It first attracted me because of the common name, and I was further intrigued when I began to do research on it. I have never been much of a lover of spiders, but after seeing the video of this one burying itself under the sand and killing the grasshopper that came too close, who wouldn’t be interested?

If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about the six-eyed sand spider, my contact information is available below. Don’t forget to check out the other web pages on
