Birch came out!!! This is the best we’re gonna get from him tonight.
We want to d i e, Samantha. Get fuckin’ used to it
Me: “Okay, Birchy (yes I named him), I’m going to move your container slightly so I can see you better and get a photo on my phone. I few people would like to see you and since you’ve been standing on top of your paper towel roll for the past 3 hours, this shouldn’t be a problem, right?”
Birch the Wolf Spider: “MY HOME HAS SLIGHTLY SHAKEN I MUST NOW HIDE WITHIN THE TUBE!!!”
Me: “……okay dude its been 20 minutes, you can come out now…..”
Birch: “I AM SAFE HERE FUCK YOU HOUSE SHAKER!!!”
Me: “I’ve been moving you around all day and NOW you hide?!?!?”
Birch: “FUCK YOUUUUUUUU!!!!!”
I don’t talk to my brother anymore but the nicest thing he ever did for me was tell me spiders couldn’t climb walls when I was little and scared one would get me while I slept
I’ve only had 2 wolf spiders in my care so far but it amuses me how completely opposite they are to each other.
Big Boi was, as the name suggest, a big boi and really just wanted to chill in his paper towel tube and just hide in the shadows until I released him.
Smol Boi, who again as the name suggests, is fairly small, seems to prefer to sit on top of the paper towel tube (different tube) and doesn’t really hide in the tube or in the paper towel bits I’ve given him.
Also yes, I have no actual decent set up for these guys, it was all meant to be temporary. However as this is now two that I’ve ended up holding for a day or two, I AM looking into getting some better options for the future.
My mom and my brother: “STOP bringing SPIDERS into this house!! They are evil and gross and we will step on them omg stop stop stoooop!!!”
Me: “If I find them in the store they’re going to get killed there so I’m bringing them home till a day where its not freezing to let them go. I am being careful but if one ever does get out then by all means step on it, I can’t stop you, but as long as they’re in my room and under my watch just chill and leave them alone, they can’t hurt you.”
Them: “Just DON’T Open the Lid or they’ll JUMP out and Bite YOU!!!!”
-proceeds to open lid and drop a tiny cricket in with a wolf spider I just caught last night, watches as the wolf spider freezes as the cricket touches it then runs in the other direction and away from the cricket and hides up on the toilet paper tube I temporarily gave it to hide in.-
Me: “….wow… monster… so vicious… so scary….”
last night I dreamed I held you in my hand
i want charlie’s songs on a cd for my car
I can’t wait for my little Arianrhod to reach this size (of course if female- females are always anticipated) Photo credit to the 2nd picture to Emzotic on youtube!
fuck it! time to watch tarantula videos on youtube
Since my three Curly hair slings (Tliltocatl Albopilosum) are all identical, I decided on names based on the color of their enclosure’s lid Lol.🕷🕷🕷✨💖
