just thinking abt......how hornet, herrah and basically the arachnids of the game has a special place in my heart, even more so because i grew up in muslim household. cuz i was raised to see arachnids as saviors.
@totally-sarcasm submitted: Found this very lovely lad in a window today! Very pretty black and white coloring. I couldn't get a very clear picture since my camera wouldn't focus right and the bright outside messed with the lighting, but these were the best I could get! Eastern North Dakota
A little window friend! How delightful. Looks like a zebra jumping spider :)
@lavendertownsghost submitted: I got these at a fair and was wondering if you could ID them? Sadly I don’t know where they’re from :(
I'm afraid not! The acrylic often deforms and discolors them, so it's really hard to make out enough detail for an ID, and even then, I probably could only say which family without knowing where they were sourced from. I can say the lighter colored one on the right in the first photo is maybe a nursery web spider of some sort just based on what I can see of the eye arrangement.

@kodamaiser submitted: sorry for the awful picture but what the hell is this thing. I found it in my bathroom I'd like to know if it's going to murder me. I live in the midlands in the uk
I'm gonna let you in on a little secret: there are no truly dangerous spiders in the UK. Worst case scenario (unless you're allergic or get a secondary infection), they give you a little bite that hurts a bit and nothing else happens. But it's difficult to get a spider to bite you, even if you're handling it. Most just want to run away. I have handled countless spiders in my life and not once has one bitten me. Scientists who study spiders for a living will tell you the same.
Anyway, this sweet little lady is a European nursery web spider. When she lays an egg sac, she'll carry it around in her mouth until it hatches! What a great mother :)
