    Non-Tarantula Spider Photo Thread

    Alrighty, now I have some time soooo here are some pics of my pretty little brown widow (Latrodectus geometricus), Lacey. Here's a belly shot of her. You can see the orange hour glass, though it's not as sharp as some examples. One of her back with the flash on. And one of her back...

    Some more of the Nephila pilipes. Omnomnom These guys were so cool, absolutely beautiful spiders. Just for comparison, these are what I'm used to. XD So much smaller and quite a bit duller

    Non-Tarantula Spider Photo Thread

    Thanks. :3 I took the ones of the last two species at the Museum of Natural History. We went there for a field trip with my Biology of Insects and Spiders class and it was one of the coolest experiences of my life. The guy in charge of the insects (forgive me for lack of technical terms XD) had...

They died shortly after I put them in a new terrarium and I think it was the mulch that did them in...

    Peacock Spiders

    I love jumping spiders, by far my favorite spiders (probably not the best thing to say on a tarantula forum.. XD) My favorite species is Phidippus audax, their chelicerae are so pretty. They have such an inquisitive face. :3 And they're so fuzzy!

    Hello, my name is Christine and I'm new here. :3 I have... ... Absolutely no tarantulas. XD Yet. For one I have no steady source of income so I cannot afford one at the moment, and I am also the type of person who researches the heck out of an animal before I decide to get one. ><; Hence my...
