Nature: 10 Amazing Spiders Found By You [Images]

spider

We had a BIG huntsman spider living with us recently. It was really fast and hard to catch, so it was with us for about a week or so. I’d just about given up on catching it and had almost accepted that we had a new pet, almost.

I must admit, I do have somewhat of an irrational fear of spiders. I think many of us do. I’m trying to get over it.

After that experience, I thought I might take a look and see what kind of other spiders people have found in their vicinity. Turns out there’s an astonishing array of amazing spiders out there that people have found.

If you’ve found and photographed an interesting one in your vicinity, do feel free leave us a link to it in the comments.

Also, can you name any of the spiders in the pictures? I certainly have no idea what most of them are!

    P.S. I don’t have a pic of the big hunstsman spider we had at our place, because whenever we saw it come out of hiding and run around, we were too busy trying to catch it and not make it too annoyed!

    Golden Orb spider by Clipworks. This spider is native to south east Asia. It usually builds it’s web between trees or shrubs. The web expands two to four feet in size. They blend in well with the background and most often you don’t see them until they are right infront of you.

    Their bodies are the lenght of a pinkie finger. They have really long legs and the spider is about the size of a hand. They are not poisoneous but pack a punch when bitten.

    I took this shot in the woods and quiclky realized that I was surronded by them. I had to be very carefull not to touch any of the webs. The female is very tiny and rather plain. So, heads up when walking through the woods!!!

    Live animals well imaged on the web seem to communicate to the viewer through elemental equity in the biosphere. The communication happens comes when an animals sees a large lens looking at them and reflexively tries to assess the probability of danger. That instinct is worldwide. The high order silicon in the networks is interconnecting with biological silicon to form a pure silicosphere (silisphere? sillysphere?) So the glass lens is not even a surprise-just that some entity they never saw before sees them.

    I have a spider I would like to know what it is! can you help? it’s about three inches with leg span – white ring around it’s cephalothorax, orange spots underneath on the “butt” of it.. and just big! it’s a dark brown, hairy spider.. it’s wet so it may appear black (found in kiddie pool in South Carolina – drowned)
