Hi! Here are a few more Nephila sp. pics. This is a real beauty 5,5" legspan!
A real closeup of her fangs!
Look at the amazing red color on her legs!
She sits in a big plant in my window!
OMG that's just awesome!!!!!!!
really love those,.... much cooler looking then birdeaters
can you tell me what their lifespan is ? do males live shorter then females and how about breeding those?
and again, very awesome spider you got their,....
I've heard they live about 1,5-3 years.
They make great orbwebs and the web is really POWERFUL.
Breeding is a slight problem, males are very small and are often seen as food. The slings are very very small an numerous, but I've heard they do we'll in captivity.
They feed on anything flying or crickets that fly with help from a hand...
I guess mine is a wildcaught female, and that means that she's probably gravid. And that's nice...
Thank's again! I love her too..
Your spider looks great, they can live longer if you make them grow slower by giving them less food but they will shed and grow after a certain amount, yours looks like it just molted but if it was wild caught it still might make egg casses. i just released about 50 jumping spiders and im waiting for 2 Nephila egg casses to hatch, they take longer to hatch then smaller spiders.
Ahhh sounds great! How many slings usually hatch?
About 300 to 400 per egg case
Köpt den av Bravin?
Så du är här också... yes den är köpt av Bravin.
Schysst, jag beställde en av han och hoppas den dyker up imorron.
Bäst att återgå till engelska annars blir det nog gnäll.. ;-)
BTW, the dealer labels it as Nephila maculata
Dunno if thats the correct name or not.
Today is a sad day. My Nephila died of some reson... It was doing well, made a big web, ate a few crickets and locusts. And today it's dead.
jaså ar jag ledsen, after...
det ar inte så bra...
