Other Critters in the House

Recommended Posts

Hiya kids!  Doing a bit more exploring of the forum and thought I would share a pic of one of the other invertebrates in my house.  For those of you who know my work at the Butterfly Pavilion here in Westminster, Colorado, you'll know that I greatly enjoy capturing images of our Colorado bugs...including some of the cool spiders that call our state home!  Here is one great example, a female house spider (Parasteatoda tepidariorum) currently residing in my garage window.  She just finished enjoying a local assassin bug that was unfortunate enough to be invited over for dinner (you can just make out the knee).

Any shots of the assassin? Might be able to ID that for you too! Gotta love Parasteatoda, they really are incredible eaters. If they think they have half a chance of eating it they will lol.

Very cool and thank you for the identification!  I'll keep an eye out for another example of this critter...I fear that the previous "dinner guest" has withered away!  However, our girl is just as robust and certainly enjoying the warm weather!!
