Hey Guys!, i was taking a tripp to my backyard the other day to see whats what and i came across with these Beautiful Spiders (specially the Tarantula... GORGEOUS), the bad thing is that i don't know what kind of spiders are, i mean, the species. Keep in Mind i live i Venezuela. So, would you mind helping me identify them?
Just FYI: The first one is not dead, she just landed on my head and i freaked out a little bit and fell down to the floor, but later i checked her and she was fine. AND i put the T' on an old empty aquarium just to take the picture. I later returned her to her home.
I saw this when you first posted it but thought it unlikely that anyone would be able to help. Maybe someone will come forward with IDs, but till then my thoughts are that the third spider (photos 4 and 5) is an orb web spinner, something like an Araneus or Neoscona, and, if I had to guess I'd say, so is the first spider (photo 1) but I'm far from sure.
Maybe you'd need to find a local expert. Or failing that, something like the Spiders of Brazil (there isn't one for Venezuela) group on Flickr might be able to help??
