She's a she. The males are tiny in comparison. She's had a mate - and like some females of our species, she ate him alive.

Ha, second time today I've spat coke on my laptop. It's not having a good day to be fair!

Liking the pics, she is a real beauty.

Jimmy is a nice name.

For a girl? (or did we assume it's female?)

It's tradition here, I believe, that everything that needs a name, will be Jimmy.

Anyway, in Dutch, the appropriate name for a spider is Sebastian. That's because of this once-very popular- poem

How about... "eight legged death with dripping fangs", or "Eldwdf", which in a nod to Jared... kinda looks Welsh!

As spiders go, that's the equivalent of Ashley, Britney, Courtney, and those other overused top 10 names.

Find something distinctive.

Oops, missed that post.

Ahem! I shall back up my claim by referring to the literature...

My vote goes to Eldwdf (whatever it means) purely because it "kinda looks Welsh!"

HA!

And good on you for supporting the Welsh-ish name. :biggrin:

You know... it occurs to me, spiders do "drink" their prey...

Did I mention how much these things get to me? Have I? :cry:

I'm a 6'1" 195 lb man and I scream like a little girl when I see a spider. I don't have any other phobias, and hell, I even realize that spiders are some of the most beneficial insects on earth. That said, RUN D H, run for your life! Forget the wife and kids, they're lost to you, just ruuuuuuuun!

Everyman for himself I take it!

I woke up this morning and found a spider had built a web right across the kitchen and was sat proudly in the middle. Not impressed. Swiftly evicted the new tenant and demolished his property (I don't remember giving him planning permission for a web of death across my kitchen).

I just don't know where they all come from, house is shiny clean when I go to bed, get up in the morning to a spider inside and about 6 scattered across each window on the outside. They're taking over I tell you, they'll get us all! :eek:
