I get some serious warm fuzzies when I glance up from the computer and see these little ladies looking back at me. It blows my mind every time. You expect that kind of awareness and curiosity from mammals and birds… But I think most people see the majority of insects and spiders as thoughtless drones. Jumping Spiders and mantids though… So smart!!! #bugluv #jumpingspider #petspider #phidippusregius #phidippus #mantis #prayingmantis #spider

Ahsoka molted recently so I figured it was a good time to clean her cage and get things all spiffy. She’s getting so big! This girl is unlike any spider I’ve had. She’s so… mellow! So easy to work with. When you handle her, she just kind of snuggles in and looks at you. If anything she borders on a touch shy. But despite that, still a very strong feeder and growing like a weed. And that orange! So bright! Beautiful girl. <3 <3 #spider #petspider #adorablespider #jumpingspider #regaljumpingspider #phidippus #phidippusregius #bugluv

I may have taught this spider to knit. I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows. After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.

Maybe it thought you were a spider

I’m gonna level with you that’s the fucking cutest shit I have ever fucking heard of okay I want a little spider that knits not sits menacingly above my bed at night threatening to fall into my mouth.


Because jumping spiders. Always.
