I realize these arent the best but i found this girl coming in a plant shipment from florida. I was wondering if you knew what she was!

So it’s pretty hard to tell based on these photos BUT…it looks like she’s got some weird pointy bits on her abdomen? And the long egg sac…makes me think she’s from the family Uloboridae, the hackled orbweavers. I’d need clearer photos to say for sure. But I love her! Thank you for sharing Juniper.

A nice friend hanging in the bath ☺️ I moved him so he wouldn’t get hurt.

I think it’s a hobo spider, but I couldn’t get a clear picture before he ran off to check.

Looks more like Tegenaria domestica to me! Which, if I remember correctly, is much more common where you live. :)

The Pumpkin Patch tarantula (Hapalopus sp Colombia) is a hardy, New World, dwarf tarantula. This species is interesting because it comes in two forms. The Groot (large form) and the Klein (small form). The small form grows to a max size of about 3in (8cm) while the large form can reach a size of about 4.5in (12cm). They are a little nervous and quick to retreat into hiding when disturbed but mine spends a lot of time out on display. They arent very defensive but can be very fast, so not an ideal tarantula to attempt to handle frequently. But with the stunning and unique color pattern and adorable size, they make a great tarantula to add to your collection. Check out my YouTube video linked on this post for more information and some cool footage of this amazing species.

The Arizona Blonde Tarantula is a gorgeous species endemic to the American Southwest as well as Northern Mexico. There are similar species found from Missouri to Mexico. This is a very slow growing species but makes for an amazing first tarantula. They are very docile, slow moving and spend a lot of time out on display once they’re larger than a few inches. Check out my video linked in this post for more info on this amazing species!

Saw your post about hoping spiders are having a good day. This girl just got a portrait taken and was fed right after. She wants you to know shes having a wonderful spiders day in, she hopes you’re having a wonderful day as well 💕🕷

Very nice! I love her! Glad she’s having a good spider day and got a tasty meal. I am indeed having a good non-spider day. :)

Found this little one on the carpet in our living room. It blended in so well, I couldn’t even see it at first until it moved. It’s dead of winter here in the Rockies of Colorado, so I put it on my palm tree to keep it safe.

Oh, a roommate! Glad they will be safe until it’s warmer out. I can’t tell what species they are but know this…I love and cherish them.

My mom found this big guy in her bathroom, we live in central virginia, do you know what it is?

Could be either the barn funnel weaver, Tegenaria domestica, or a dark fishing spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus. The photo is a bit blurry and they look very similar except for size - the dark fishing spider is usually larger. And also the dark fishing spider is much less likely to be found in your house unless you live near a wooded area, especially a wooded area with water nearby. But dark fishing spiders are more common in Virginia…so…hard to say for sure. What I do know is that I love this spider and it is very nice.

Hello, your blog is adorable! This is my pet tarantula, Vex (and his shedding). He is a Honduran Curly Hair. Also we don’t know for sure if he is a he because the only way to tell is if he has these hooks on his front legs (used for sexy time with the ladies) and all the hairs kind of hide it so… hmm

Hello! Thank you! Whether Vex is a lady spider or a manbro spider I still love him and think he is perfect. Look at those lush leg locks. A++++++

This is a video i shot several years ago using my Android smartphone of a jumping spider crawling on top of a poison arrow frog enclosure, where it is looking for food. Since the common food I provided them, wingless and flightless fruit flies, can still randomly escape, there is good hunting here. It’s about as large as a penny. I found it by accident. #arachnids #photography #android #homeless #midlifecrisis #anxiety #depression #chronicpain #healthissues #mmjpatient #420 #710 #marijuana #reefer #prop215 #workingonmyself #gonnagethealthy
