    She will probably be the first of many. I started off a year ago with a chile rose and now have all sorts of spiders, 19 in all! Its very addictive!

    Oh wow you have 14!! Thats ace!!
    I'd like a pink toe'd spider, but it was all my effort to get my husband to agree to let me have one, so i'd better not push it (for now..hehe!!) Actually he's fascinated with her too. I love the webs she makes on the ground. Have you got a few different breeds then?

    OMG 19!!!!!!!!

    You must have a massive house to keep them all?!!!!

    Do the person/people you live with like the fact that you have lots of spiders?

    I do think they're beautiful creatures but I couldnt go near them!!!!!!!!

    Do they bite?

    No, I don't have a massive house, they don't need much living space. Yes they will bite but only as a last resort. They will flick hairs at you that stick in your skin and make you itch before biting.

    Love the collies!! :)

    Here is a link to my photobucket album of my spiders if you fancy taking a look.
