OMG #2  
i've trawled through the spiderwebs online to try to identify spidey #2, and i've concluded that he's some sort of jumping spider. spidey #1 is probably a weaver of some sort, he weaves and waits. spidey #2 is an aggressive hunter who goes and grabs what he wants.

here are the pics of spidey #2. spider-haters, look away now.

i'm not sure if i should feed him, or if i can feed him without him jumping right out of the jar. he's a fast one!

i've been trying to get better pics of spidey #1 (and also because i like him better :D) but he's just too tiny. camera can't seem to focus on him. also blame the old jar i put him in - the surfaces are scratched and blurry. i might transfer him to a clearer jar tomorrow... but i feel bad for toppling him in to a new place so rudely. especially since he has built a little webcity in the jar!

but what must be done, must be done.

i'm not sure if i can actually manage to get him out through his maze of webs, but i can try.

on second thought, the pics didn't turn out so bad. i think my lumix viewer probably zooms in too much and the pics looked much worse before uploading. maybe i'll leave spidey in peace in the current jar.

love watching babyspidey wipe his face, like a kitten. he's so cute when his little fangs are wiggling... like someone wriggling his nose. when he wakes up from slumber, he stretches all his little legs like a cat, and wipes himself down with his little feetsies.

First spider is really cute. Maybe put a few twigs in the jars so they've got something to explore and put webs on?

i've thought about putting in twigs and leaves, but then it may get messy if they start to decompose... right now i have to think about how it's gonna work if i really keep him, whether i'm gonna get a little tank or something for him.

a minimalist jar-space works for now because i can clean it so easily. and i can see where he or his food (live or dead) are. i can even take him out with me in my handbag. haha!

i do want him to have a nicer living space... but then spidey is almost totally blind. weaving spideys have the worst eyesight (but keen sense of movements). :) he might not appreciate all his nice furniture!

and he hardly even walks around the entire jar. he has adopted that little corner of the jar as his HQ. :)

man, i have so much to say about one teeny weeny spidey!

I've forgotten spiders have that many eyes *shudder*

freaky isn't it? high-res cameras rock. :) i scared myself when i enlarged the pic!

i want a pic of baby like the one i took of munster, but cannot leh. he doesn't walk around enough and he doesn't stare at things (because he's blind as a bat).

the "OMG" picture was too much. if i saw that, i would have pee'd myself. youre much braver than i.

thanks dw! :) it was a blessing that i found spidey #1 first and because of that, i've been looking at all sorts of spider species online... thus have been 'conditioned' to seeing freaky spideys!

that said, if munsterspidey was the size of a hand, i'd still freak out bigtime!
