I found this outside my door. It sat in a corner though, so I could only take a picture of the abdomen. Is this an English Cross Spider too? I saw one of the submissions from earlier this week it looked pretty similar. 
Thanks for an awesome blog <3
AS: Yes i would agree that it is an english cross spider, though many orb weavers look similar from the underside the shape of the abdomen and banned legs suggest cross spider :)

I recently acquired this Avicularia versicolor sling. I’m convinced it is the most charming tarantula baby on the planet. I’m completely smitten, naturally.
AS: ah the cuteness i can&#8217;t handle it, pink toes are so awesome

Not the best picture so apologies for that but it was hard to get a good pic because this little cutie is so incredibly small, found it sat on the top of a pile of clothes but I have no idea of what type of spider it is.
AS: that is a bark crab spider!

I’ve never seen a spider like this before and wondered if you might know what the pretty little thing is. It almost had a rainbow sheen to it.
AS: that a phiddipus sp. jumping spider who is very ready to lay her egg sac! she&#8217;s huge!

Anonymous asked: What would be the best beginner tarantula?

Chilean rose hairs are considered the best beginner tarantula because they are usually (individual tarantula temperament varies from spider to spider) very docile and are also very easy to care for and hardy, they’re also very pretty and inexpensive :)
