Iím a photography enthusiast. I found this guy in the forest at Khon Kaen province (Thailand). Iíve gone through photo books and sites for identification but I failed to find a match. Iíd hope that you might be able to identify his species. Thank you in advance, Kitchanan

Hi Glen. We have a lot of trap door spiders here in Central Texas but this one looks a bit different from the usual ones I find flushed out of their burrow after a downpour. While searching for an ID I found articles on Mouse Spiders and this one looks similar. What is your opinion? Bob

Hi Glen, I was just checking out your site and figured you might like this photo I took in my yard last year. Someone just asked me what type of spider it was and I used your site to ID it. Paul

Hi Glen! I have released Icky, she was getting too big and wasnt catching enough food inside, so i let her outside so she will eat more before winter comes. I was at the bus stop today and seen this quarter-sized orbweaver. She was eating something and was a rather hairy girl. I got one photo of her that I just LOVE. I think it might be one of my best spider photos yet, the hair was just an added bonus. Casey

Hi - love your site! Here are a few photos of the largest spider I've ever had the pleasure of seeing in the wild. She was in a burrow under a rock (carefully replaced) in Fairfield Bay, Arkansas. The third photo is mediocre but shows an old molt in the background. Cheers bob

Glen, Thank you for maintaining such a useful site as spiderzrule.com. Iíve used it a couple of times to identify the spiders I photograph (and I post your URL when I do). Iím sending in three photos that you are more than welcome to post on your site as examples. Thanks again for the useful information. Also, here is a link to my latest jumping spider photo, which might have been too big to e-mail. But you can download it from my Flickr page at a smaller size if you would like. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeffeppinette/7361489270 Regards, Jeff Eppinette

Hi Glen, Fantastic site and love it and your shared passions for all things spidery. I was wondering if you had any idea what species the attached images might be? The first series I thing are of Golden Silk Orb weaver but I cannot find any other images of this stunning creature. It was about 3-4 inches long And the second a very aggressive tarantula methinks about 6-7 inches long. All found in Bayanga, the CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC. Thought you might like the images for your collection Kindest Regards, Greg

Hi Glen, enjoy your site. We live on 40 acres in the southern area of Texas. I believe this is a wolf spider. What do you think? Robbin
