Long-bodied Cellar Spider - male
Oak Ridge, TN
August 18, 2008
I found this guy in my room at school. I put him in a plastic "critter cage", which explains the backwards Japanese writing in the photo! The female's web was nearby, I tried "introducing" the couple by putting her in his web, but she would have no part of it! ;)
These spiders can become cannibals if they don't have enough food from insect prey!
