    This lass has just trapped. Heteropoda Lunula. She's a bit tatty but will be transformed when she sheds.

    Well she's just caught and is eating a cricket. Her first feed since she trapped. I can relax a bit now.

    They always say that the reason jumping spiders attach silk before jumping in case they miss, but clearly it's at least partly so when the animal twice as big as you are starts flying around you aren't flung around on top of it.

    Finally. This girl has fed. She's been eating a large adult male silent cricket for 24 hours.

    I'm over the moon.

    Keeping a day-to-day log like that is a really good idea!

    I just write down when I get a new pet and when they shed.
