Dysdera crocata

Hey all, Just thought I'd make a post on my newest addition, a handsome male Dysdera crocata! My father found him on the kitchen floor a couple of days ago, and I'm so glad he called me to take a look... these are one of my favorite local spiders!

I did some research and found out they greatly enjoy pill bugs and wood lice as meals, so I threw one in yesterday and he went right for it! The jaws on this thing are incredibly slender and according to what I've read, are designed for catching wood lice.

Anyhow, here are some pics I took! :D {D :drool:
