    Spider Chat ::::3 Warning: Spider pictures

    This chat thread is to talk about spiders, other bugs, or anything loosely related to these wonderful creatures.
    Just try not to spam too much 60s spiderman.

    Goes without saying, if you are an arachnophobe, it would be for your best interest to avoid this thread.

    Found a spider crawling up my arm the other day while i was browsing. Good thing it didn't bite me when i freaked out because it was a brown recluse. Really hate those things.

    Put a warning in title, I know it's obvious but better safe than sorry.

    I found a white tail on my inner leg the other day...when I went to the toilet
    Fortunately it was a baby.
    Killed it and it's mother, who was also in the bathroom.

    So cute




    I really don't like dealing with bugs in general, but I'd never kill a spider. I don't mind pretending that it doesn't exist as long as it keeps the other bugs away (or dead).

    I love this one so much.

    No idea but here's the video. I think the spider was trying to eat that and managed to do so, then got crazy. xD

    Ooh, I've probably taken thousands of pictures of invertebrates, I haven't got most of them uploaded though.

    Here are a few pics I've taken

    If anyone has any questions about keeping tarantulas or other inverts as "pets" just give me a shout

    I love spiders and other wonderful bugs

    The only bugs that disgust me are cockroaches, probably a childhood trauma. Other than that, I don't really see why so many people get so freaked out by bugs.

    Also, hate getting spiderwebs on my face.

    I'm a herpetologist, I have around 200 tarantulas at the minute along with a lot of other inverts and double that amount of snakes and lizards

    Do you have any millipedes?

    I used to have a pet African giant millipede named Patanas. It's a word play between Satanas and "pata" which is spanish for "leg". He lived in a little round fishbowl and got to be about 25 cm long before rolled up and died one day for some unknown reason. He used to love running from one hand, up my arm, across my back and down my other arm, back and forth

    I've got giant african millipedes, they're surprisingly cute.. although a lot of people get creeped out by them. It's centipedes that creep me out.

    OH! :O

    You got spider pets?

    One thing I've always been interested about spider pets is, how you get the food.... Does it come in a can like turtle or fish food?
