Those of you who haven’t already quickly moved on, shrieking, may care that I hadn’t seen any of the cave spiders in the shed since a couple of years ago: 22/6/14 was the last appearance of one on here. Thought they had moved out, but three turned up today under an old table that we had in there. I think the one on the left is the one I got in a better picture of on 9/6/12; the red markings on the legs (though not that clear on this shot) are very similar. And look, it’s sweet. They’re breeding….
we just grabbed a photo of a black widow with egg sac – from the spare wheel of son’s car – it sat out on grass for a month while he was at camp and yuck –
anyhow – this photo is crazy and cool – I like spiders but they still give me a shiver at times –
I think ours are a little less dangerous than black widows 🙂 However, these are the biggest species of spider to be found in Britain…
well so glad yours are less dangerous – and such a cool photo here – 😉
