    Outright fascinating. I am not the largest fans of these 'creepy' crawlers, but I can't help but just taking in all of the detail (largely because I never plan on getting quite that close to these organisms without a large panel of glass between me and them) that you have captured. Wonderful work.

    I like all the photos of your pets, but you might wish to get a warning added to your title? Something like "arachnophobes beware!" or so? Not all like to see what they get to see, though I must say that the second and fifth photo here are COOLEST!!!

    Unconventional pets... to say the least. I bet they don't have unconventional names either. I don't think "Fluffy" or "Spot" will do.

    Thanks! Yes, the web is entirely real, this particular spider spins a very odd, very sticky web. I caught it in the act of making more, hence the strand from one of her legs. This spider is a Kukulcania arizonica, a Arizona house spider. :wink:
