HI My name is Kelsey, and I don't know about you, but I think Spiders and Tarantulas are adorable!
This is a spider appreciation blog, if you don’t enjoy spiders then please steer clear.
THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY!

i spotted this cool spider near my front door and it was very calm, i was able to get pretty close to snap a pic! any idea what kind of spider it is? i live in maryland, if that helps!
AS: nice find! thats a female wolf spider Lycosidae sp. carrying her egg sac! they are nomadic (meaning they don’t make a web) so they bring their babies along with them! once they hatch they’ll ride around with her on her abdomen :)
I found this when I was clearing my back garden!! I think it’s a giant house spider but I’m not sure. If you could let me know what it is that would be great!! I’m in the south of England if that helps.
AS: that is a Funnel spider, though since you’re in the UK it’s called a Labyrinth spider! or a Giant house spider/Hobo spider, anyway looks like this one’s web was messed up which would explain why it’s out in the open :)
