Advertisement Let me start off saying, I'm actually an arachnophobe if it isn't obvious from my name pft. Though I always had a strange fascination with spiders. I recently found a medium sized wolf spider on my bed and, after proceeding to have a panic attack and cry, managed to capture it. Once captured, I am absolutely fine with spiders. I know they cant touch or hurt me, so I dont mind. I've actually been keeping spiders as a way to slowly overcome my arachnophobia since I know they're truly quite cool creatures. Heres the issue though. In my blind panic to get this large spider off my bed, I slammed the jar down a bit on one of its legs. I plan to keep the spider as a pet and not release it, but I think I may of broken one of its legs. I didn't mean too, the jar i used was too small and I was panicking and not wanting it to run away. I feel terrible but my question is, will it heal naturally? is there anything i can do to help it? will it die? or will it survive since its now in a man made habitat and being fed and cared for? if you could help me out that'd be great I read up on wolf spiders and they really dont need much to survive. I got some dirt, clean water, and a hide for it in a container about 2-3x larger then its legspan and some Vaseline at the top so if it does decide to climb (despite it likely not being able too) it wont be able to get to the top and scare me. Either way, any help and tips is appreciated!
