Spiders anyone ?

Recommended Posts

Using my Sherlock Holmes like investigative skills I managed to identify it as either meta menardi or meta bourneti both types of cave spider (although due to a lack of caves in South Norfolk this one had taken up residence in a disused pheasant feeder)

I've had her in my garage for a few years now and as I'm taking it down thought she might like it in the summer house but don't really want her there if she might nip the kids.

Looks vaguely like a false widow to me but I know there's a couple of spider nerds on here somewhere.😊

Oops, it managed to liven itself up once it came indoors and somehow managed to get out the pot I have had it in for the last few hours.

 

Apparently that makes me an "absolute dick" but I'll take that as a compliment.

It's a female steotoda bipunctata / rabbit hutch spider.

One of the false widows but I wouldn't worry she'll just wander off and find a dark cupboard to call home.

Ta very much 👍🏻. I was amazed how quickly she scarpered considering how lethargic she'd been earlier.

 

Not worried myself but better half and daughters not too impressed.
