kroonermanblack: I like spiders outside. I love wolf or hunting spiders anywhere. They fascinate me and are adorable and awesome to watch move and so on.Web spiders give me the creepy crawlies though.

Lived on the lanai for about 6 months, we'd check up on her, feed her roaches and moths and whatever else we could catch, watch her grow. Then we watched her spin her mating web, lay an egg sac or two, and then pass on a week or so after laying her eggs. My daughter buried her in the side yard.Unfortunately, we moved before we got a chance to see her spiderlings hatch.That's a Black and Yellow Argiope, not a Golden-Silk. Both are orb weavers, but not the same species. They can have similar markings, but the give away is the web. The Argiope always has that zig-zag pattern in the middle (you can see it better in Balchinian's photo above). Golden-Silk spiders don't do that.
