    Hunter as prey

    This spiderling ( Araneus diadematus ) was in the unfortunate position of having two legs trapped by the Bohemian Garnet. I released the unfortunate Arachnid and lectured the plant on trapping the whole of its prey or at least a significant portion.

    Hello from Illinois

    Hello all! New to CPs as a whole, though I've tried keeping the cheap ones you can find at Home Depot and other stores like that without a ton of success. I just got a couple started from the DuneCraft eggs, so fingers crossed those work a little better! Just on the face of things, I'm most...

    Jumping spider with dinner

    Last weekend I was enjoying the beautiful weather by preparing a nice BBQ dinner for the family. We had just sat down at the table (out on the deck) when my youngest son pointed out a “spider carrying another spider” (as he put it) on one of the deck posts. It turned out to be a juvenile...

    Tell me about cinnamon oil

    Cinnamon oil sounds interesting. A little bird told me it works however I haven't quite grasped when one would use it. Does one use it for both insect and arachnid infestations?

    I've wanted to buy a scorpion since I was about 10 years old. First of all, I'm going to college next year, so I probably won't be able to bring a scorpion, even if it's in a closed container.
