Anonymous asked: Hello! I live in Southern California and during summer i often see little cream and orange looking spiders outside around my apartment complex! They have a sort of soft appearance but aren't fuzzy, do you have any idea what they might be?
sounds like it might be a Wood Louse Spider Dysdera crocata
these are very common in southern california
Anonymous asked: I found a spider in my house. Whenever I approach it, it immediately stops and plays dead. I caught it to put it outside but it's super cold. Will it be okay if I release it? Or should I keep it for a day or two? It's pretty small, and from what I can see, doesn't have any markings.
chances are it will die in the cold, so keep in a well ventilated jar with a stick, most spiders can do a while without eating but if you happen across small insects maybe, but yes i’d wait till it’s warmer out to release it
