She was so puny and you only got her a few weeks ago! WOW! I didn't know they grew that fast at all! What kind of spider is she again?

shes a yellow sac spider (only spider in my locality with a potentially dangerous bite. not fatal but the venom can cause the bite wound to become necrotic like a brown recluse spider)

I just read the link you sent me. They don't grow very big then do they? I know your will get a lot bigger but you know what I mean. It said like 3/4 of an inch... I think. I jus clicked off the link

How long are you keeping it for? I ask because I didn't know whether you were keeping it as a pet or keeping it for a little while to release it later on haha.

How long do they live for?

Sorry for all of the questions haha!

shes a pet. she was going to be released... but i got attached lol

spiders do not live long. so maybe a year at best i think. shes in a 500 mL jar, holes in the lid for air.

1-2 fruit flies a day (which i have to raise for her), a drop of water, a hiding place and a clean dry enclosure. moisture causes mold which will kill spiders. i gave her a willow stick to climb on and a paper towel for substrate and she likes to hide under there too.

they are nocturnal and doesnt come out during the day. she sleeps in her hiding places and comes out at night to hunt.

ironically how i found her, she bit my foot so i caught her for ID if i reacted (which either it was a dry bite or i dont react to their venom) felt a sting to my foot and saw her on my foot. got a welt with 2 fang holes that was it. itched a little and it went away in a few days. so i lucked out but i got attached to her. so i went to my favourite website for spiders and looked up their care and kept her. lowest maintanance pet out there besides rocks

you can tell shes female because she doesnt have club like pedipalps (antenae) like males do
