    Daddy Long Legs

    Hi everyone I've been breeding daddy long legs and releasing them into the garage(and the neighbors house) These are the only things that reminded me of....[PM me for story] before I...[PM me for story]

    These daddy long legs may seem different from where you live. This is from Long Beach, California.
    Here is a picture of one of the mother and its babies. I don't know if it you can see it, sorry

    I had the mother ever since it was a baby. I found it in the cornor of my grandpa's 1980's hippie van!
    The little dot things are the 2 day old hatched spiderlings. The mother is eating a fly-like insect.

    sorry for the bad quality. I only have a webcam.


    Hope you enjoyed it!

    To me, the common name for the first is Grand Daddy Long Leg and the second is a Harvestman. That's why I hate common names. We have the former inside and the latter outside.
