« from nova scotia: nurturing spider babies »

habitat for spider babies

I continue to be amazed by the things that I can handle now that I have a lover of all things that creep and crawl… I am learning to let go of my fears and allow her to take the lead when it comes to these little creatures. She has a sense about them… Another level of connection with these wonderful minibeasts…

Hi Lori :) Yuuuuck! LOL
I am applauding that precious mom and hoping that as my little creepy crawly lover grows- my courage will grow as well. I have to admit that I fervently hope that we can do all of our spider studies one-at-a-time :)

Thanks for the link. I enjoyed reading about what they learned.
Hugs & love, Q

Sweet!!! look at em' go! Girls are sometimes more into spiders more than boys, contrary to conventional thought. My personal favorite/bummer is when I disturb a mommy in the garden and we get to see her high tail it with her babies on her back. Seth is always eager to check out hatchlings.

quinne, lolol — i think a lot of people feel that way! :^) i draw the line at bringing spiders inside — i prefer the big ones stay out in the greenhouse. but we have enough spiders around the property that i can usually convince the boys they don’t need to keep them as temporary pets; they basically are permanent pets!

alis, tell seth we need to see some drawings of his hatchlings. :^)

My spider-phobic son saw these pictures and said "Why would anyone do that?!" Hehe... he calls his little sister over to kill bugs for him... ~:-)
