Thanks, Andy. All the specimens I saw in the wild were as you said. Typically near the bottom or hollow of a cypress tree/man-made structure above water. Fastest spider I've seen personally, by far.

Great pics of a great spider. I love this genus. I've kept WC D. tenebrosus from my area and they are fascinating. Like you say, they move very fast but it took a lot to ruffle the feathers of the specimen I had. She was pretty brave for a critter only weighing a couple of grams. Not defensive, just... unflappable.

definitely fast but not very aggro,they become quite accustomed to captivity even catching prey items dropped in to enclosure..

Great Pictures! :clap: We own a female Fishing Spider and she is extremely calm as well. She shows no signs of aggression except when feeding, of course! Also, we own a few of Florida's Ctenus captiosus (False Wolf/Wandering Spider) which are an amazing species as well. Both are beautiful spiders! Good Luck in the future! :)

She's been carrying this for a few weeks now. All digits crossed that it's fertilized. Anyone have an approximation of time until hatch?
