    ok i have a pider here that looks like a latro, but im wondering why it is so small, it is only about 5mm with hair tip slings, i just found them when we had a trip on a hunted house for the halloween, i also got cellar spider, sac spiders (red and those yellowish ones) and other spiders,

    talking about the spider it is now fat and it has a shiny/glossy design on the abdomen above, looks like a maple leaf to me but it is not colored, it is brown same as its abdomen, ill look more on it but it takes me a lot of time making it go down because it already web the top cover. so anyone knows what it is?

    You can give them almost anything that's moving and is less than twice the size of the spider. Ants would be good.
  6. ok last question, do they have venom? and the distribution? im here in the Philippines

    Get whatever clip on lights or whatever you have and whatever camera you have and take some photos. (be careful with how hot those lights get your spider though! :eek: Done that one once...:clap: :rolleyes: )
    With only a discription, most here will either not attempt an ID or they will throw out the most common posibilities ...ones with images that are available or that they have. Yours could be in between all of this and may not even be properly discribed and photographically represented anywhere online. But, thats how this knowledge base actually grows ...you, for some perfectly good, goofball reason needs to know what you have, so you show it here. Experts and a bunch of wannabes like myself try and figure it out ...and may even pull it off...hopefully correctly. Then later on someone else does a search for it and figures it out in 1/10th the time ...because of you! :D

    Something that really irratates me ...there's more info online about TP and the medical condition known as ED then there is about the individual creatures that walk this Earth. Yes, there are some interesting bio database sites attempting to remedy the situation, but they seem to be stuck at the beginning. And there are those PDFs..good cold, to the point science articles...interesting reading, but jeese, at the very least show me an image if the thing, so I know if I'm reading about the thing I want to be reading about.?? :rolleyes: There is no more excuses. The cost of film has been eliminated and server space is beyond plentiful. If there is enough room for MILFS hunting midgets, then there is enough room the rest of the stuff that is worth searching for.

    ooops...sorry. [/rant]
    :rolleyes: just was trying to find some info on the worldwidewank.

  8. okie ill try my best on how to get a good pic of this, :rolleyes: , i sometimes hate web because they give false info so its better for me to ask the board :D , gg ill gonna consume my whole week end on this spidy having a pic of it, i mean it it is microscopic. :D.{D
