I think the thermographic image contains a lot of information, it's shows perfectly what "coldblooded" looks like in case of a spider. I'm pretty new at wiki, so might not be at the same "wavelength" about the type of information that you are looking for. Maybe it's an idea to add a gallery at the bottom just for the "neat" images.
Your are right about the location of the images, I think "thermoregulating tools" should have there own chapter on a few different animal-pages (pinquins, bears, otters animals like that, with interesting thermo-stories). I don't know how to create those chapters myself yet, so I looked for the most appropated place, I agree this wasn't the best way. I'm not a biologist so it's very difficult for me to add a lot of tekst to the images. I'll try to get some feedback on the talk-pages.
Articles you might like to edit, from SuggestBot
SuggestBot predicts that you will enjoy editing some of these articles. Have fun!
SuggestBot picks articles in a number of ways based on other articles you've edited, including straight text similarity, following wikilinks, and matching your editing patterns against those of other Wikipedians. It tries to recommend only articles that other Wikipedians have marked as needing work. Your contributions make Wikipedia better -- thanks for helping.
Just a note to ask if you are still working on the tarantula pages? I'm struggling to understand hi wiki's work, so bear with me.
I write as i research tarantulas, so have a great interest that the public gets the best knowledge. I have a phd in biology, and my homepage is here http://web.pdx.edu/~stul/
I am offering help/advice for your questions, and ask that we can talk about any problems/uncertainties you have. I am primarily a taxonomist/systematist. I have a great network of friends/collaborators who you might talk to to get the best/accurate information.
best wishes, stuart. sjl197-at-hotmail.com
