I keep big wolf spiders when I find them. I'm not allowed to keep tarantulas, though.

What kind(s) do you have?

Wow! That's a lot!
I hope that your female pulls through!

Do the huge orb weavers that hang out outside my windows count? I've been known to name them from time to time.

Of course it does! I once blocked off my front door with crime scene tape because the most beautiful web had been constructed between my two front pillars. (The kids did NOT appreciate having to walk to the back yard and come in the patio door. They couldn't wait for the next wind storm. lol

It's a lot, but definitely worth it! I hope she does too. I also hope she's a male since they have a gorgeous light purple-pink on them.
Um... are they all in your house?

You could even argue that I feed them by leaving some lights on! The only person who's been upset by my live and let live attitude towards spiders is the terminx guy, who really wants me to pay him to knock them all down whenever he does an inspection. I think I smell a conspiracy there, though, since the spiders are probably doing more pest control than he is! XD

Just recently, I caught a little jumping spider and put it in an enclosure that used to have a mantis in it. I've been feeding it gnats that I find on the window screens. Lol I wish I could get a picture of him, but he's so small...
