    Can't bloody believe that. My stunning Macrothele gigas actually stayed out whilst I removed the top of her enclosure and stayed out to feed.

    Most have just missed this lass moulting. She looks like stained glass in her fresh clothes as she waits to harden.

    I think the consensus is it'd hurt a lot. Not deadly but not something you'd just shake off.

    Cheers ears.

    You ever seen or hear of Sosippus or Hippasa, i think one of the only types of wolf spider to use a sheet web like a funnel web to catch prey. wonder if they are ever for sale in EU

    At over 5 minutes in length this is definitely 1 of my longer videos but this lass absolutely fascinates me. And being that she's also out in the open I also get to see the whole feeding process.

    Fangs were looking mighty red in this clip, the bitey greased lightning must have moulted recently. Such a cool species.

    I think so yes as the last time I tried to feed her the cricket was ignored.

    Cutest spiders in the world. You should be able to see me holding my camera in her eye's reflection.
