Im specifically asking about spiders and not tarantulas.
Is anyone else as fascinated by arachnids as i am? I know a majority seems to be reptiles but i know people like me who have broad interests.
If you own spiders what species? Or do you plan on getting any? Or if spiders aren’t your thing thats ok too!
I recently got a jumping spider after wanting one for a long time. They are seriously so much fun and not to mention they are adorable!
They are definitely the cutest of all arachnids. I use to catch them but i never kept them but lately i have been thinking of getting some. They are a lot of fun to watch.
I love spiders. I haven’t kept any in a long time but I’d love to get a jumping spider sometime.
I’m working on getting a (small) bioactive terrarium put together so I can start keeping jumping spiders (one at a time). I have a lot going on so it may be awhile before it’s ready for an occupant, but I’ve gotten the ball rolling.
Imo they are by far the most adorable of all arachnids i think followed by crab spiders and the most beautiful are the orb weavers. The creepiest i have to say are the tarantulas. Im not afraid of species like black widows they actually rarely bite and prefer to run away.
I have nor will i kill any spider i feel bad for them because so many people fear them for no reason and kill them on sight without realizing they serve a vital purpose. I always safely catch and release spiders and never let friends kill them even in thier house.
right here! I own a phidippus audax named wandrous!
