My grass spider egg sac hatched tonight and I need help! They were not supposed to hatch for another month! They are absolutely minuscule and are smaller than fruit flies. What do I feed them? Ants? Springtails? I am in complete panic mode!
This was my female grass spider who just passed away. I rescued her from my school locker room where kids where tearing her legs off. Although missed, she may have left behind a fertile egg sack. After death, there is life.
Agelenopsis pennsylvanica (funnel weaver/grass spider) enclosure webbing. We found this guy outside our apartment and took him in to take care of. Hes been a great eater, webbed up the entire cage we gave him and doesnt even try to escape, hes very lively especially around dusk.
This is my Agelenopsis juvie. I had the mom last year and she laid the sac for me later in the year. The sac hatched in the Spring I believe. It's a great eater and among my collection right now it's probably one of my favorite true spiders. Here it's shown sitting near its latest molt.
Found a "huge" (2-3 inches) funnel weaving Wolf Spider (I think) that has taken up residence in my windowsill. Unfortunately he/she cannot stay, but I was thinking about adopting it, but I'm not sure yet. Either way, very pretty spider and a very cool web!
