feel a storm coming...an ARTSTORM! [userpic]
jumping spider!

got a pet jumping spider in a lizard cage! need advice on how to care for him if anyone has info to share :) pictures to follow if i can ever catch up on the stuff i'm behind on :\


Just a favour to ask...can you please put pictures behind a cut with a warning. I have severe arachnophobia and have panic attacks if I see pictures of them. :-( I'm glad you're so excited though!

aww sorry you don't get to see the cutest lil fuzzies without stress. will do

Yeah it really sucks! And I know a lot of people adore them but I just can't get over the fear.

Jumping spiders will eat just about any bug. You can buy crickets to feed them. them will eat bugs bigger than they are. some fake foliage to hide in my also be appreciated. Also mist the cage like you would for a lizard since them sometimes get moisture by drinking dew like many other creatures. you may possibly be able to train it as well. i had a wolf spider who learned my hand near the cage meant food and would get ready and jump at anything i put it.

Thanks! I kind of know the basics, was hoping for something a lil more specific I guess but its nice to know I had the basics right :)

for anything more specific i would have to know the specific spider.
