    sanguinea and wolf spiders =)

    so lastnight I go into my office room to take a look at some wood flooring samples I just got from home depot and move the rug aside to place down the samples. Just then a giant wolf spider jolts out from under the rug.. typically these guys are the staple food for my nepenthes so I trap him with a cup, looking at him closer his back is all spikey and fuzzy which isnt typical for these spiders (at least the spikes)

    I bring it over and dump it out with a makeshift funnel out of a piece a paper which leads him into my sanguinea..

    since this was a new pitcher it didnt have much fluid inside so i pour in some extra RO water.

    just then i heard all these popping and hissing noises, i look inside and TONS of baby spiders are swimming trying to escape, and tons more are sunk on the bottom of the pitcher.

    what a trip.. when I had the spider in the cup there was no sign of baby spiders at all, just spikes on its back

    I feel badly for all the baby spiders. Never got a chance at life.

    Family feast, and they were they main course! Last week I fed my mantis a momma wolf with babies on her back. Yeah, that good wholesome family fun!
