hi was just wandering if anyone can help me identify this lovely looking spider i had to catch it in a glass as was quite fiesty i have found quite a few of these in my home they dont bother me but just interested to find out what they are as never seen them before im located in north yorkshire thanks
thats brilliant thankyou are they ok to leave in the house or would i be better off putting them back outside i dont mind them but we have had a few spider bite incidents in the area in the past few weeks im going to do some research now haha want to find out some more about our little house guests your help was much appreciated
Actually, the only spider I've ever been bitten by was an Amaurobius but that was when I unwisely tried to pick it up between two fingers. It hurt a bit but there were no lasting effects apart from a small reddish mark.
Normally I'd say it would be beneficial for it to be outdoors though now the frosts have arrived it might be condemning it to death - I don't know. As it's an adult male it's probably looking for a female.
after looking at some pictures definatly looks like similis so this is the one that the young eat the mother very interesting i used to be terrified of spiders but after some very useful documenteries and reading about they are actually extremely facsinating creatures i have to say im now hooked and pleased to say im no longer scared by these beautiful and amazing little although some not so little creatures and again thankyou for your quick response
i seem to have a family of them in the cupboard outside so i think i will put them back in there out of the elements i had to catch this one in a glass as when trying to pick it up with my hand it got rather upset haha but to be honest if i was that big and saw a massive hand coming toward me i think i would attack haha this one in paticular was very fiesty even in the glass he looked as if he was stabbing the glass with his front legs all the others have been a bit more laid back
