I found this Dolomedes species in the woods Sunday night. Last night she laid a sac. She has a 4" leg span.

I keep them in 32 oz delicups on a tilted slab of pine bark. At the bottom of the cup, I have about 1" of damp ecoearth. These are found in the woods away from water.

I'd be very interested in a pair if you have luck raising the slings. I want to set up nice sized enclosure with water/bugs/fish etc and need a BIG fisher that can hold its own.
