Anti-caturday post

I used to keep these lovely little guys as pets — they’re so pretty and active, and have such soulful eyes…and so many of them. Their courtship dance is also cool, and so easily evoked; these spiders are always looking for love.

Unfortunately, the species I’ve been able to find in Minnesota are much smaller than the ones I found in Oregon, and the weather greatly limits their availability. If you’re living in warmer climes and haven’t been watching these adorable beasties you’ve been missing out. Especially if you’re keeping cats, instead.
