New Big Spider Pics, too!

Here is a shot of Anansi, devouring a cricket. I had never noticed the stripes on her chelicera. Gorgeous!

Elmo's Cobalt Blue usually has a web over the top of her burrow. It was completely open Saturday night! This made for an only-slightly better photo-op, but also made me a bit more nervous while I cleaned her cage and fed her. This species is quite aggressive.
