ok with all the critters i brought back from n.c. , i was seperating them into new homes, and i came across this tiny, tiny, tiny speck crawling across one of the deli cups...i stuck it in a small vial....and if you hold it to the light just right, and look extremely close, it looks like the build of a black widow....but it is pretty much the size of the very tip of a needle....so i been givin it a small mist of water here and there, and wondering when its gonna starve...then today, i found the smallest latteralis nymph i could, ( which is like still 100 times bigger than sling)....then i killed the nymph, and placed it in the vial with it....dont know if it will eat it, or if it even needs or can eat being this small.....what do you think? i thought about trying to get a pic, but as small as it is....probably wont even work...thanks
