During this period of self-isolation, sit back and chill with this relaxed video of Nephila pilipes using her silk to wrap up a small stick insect. Unfortunately, I injured the stick insect while changing its bramble and it couldn’t grip or walk properly – this is why I thought it best to feed to the Orb Weaver.
When the world is going crazy…. get Rickety Rickety Wrecked!
I normally don’t encourage handling of spiders BUT there are times when it is unavoidable – like when it’s on your head! I don’t know if or when I’d ever get the chance to have her walk on me again so took my chance.
I have always wanted to have a free-roaming Orb Weaver – I may be mental but it makes me so happy and she is really interesting already. There will be a lot more updates on this lady coming asap.
These are the two smallest of their group too.

Description by http://www.thespidershop.co.uk
One of the most beautiful arboreal Tarantulas available. In you can imagine a 20cm+ metallic purple / blue spider with long red hairs and pink toes you nearly there! There appears to be a very low ratio of females to males in egg sacks (1 female to every 5 males so I have been told) so females are hard to come by. I have yet to see a photograph do this species justice, we tried for hours but never really got a perfect match, the photos just don’t seem to capture the purple only the blue. This species needs to be kept in a relatively large arboreal set up with vertical hides. They also like quite dark enclosures. Spiderlings tend to burrow until bigger. This species is a must for all arboreal and Asian keepers or anyone who just likes stunning spiders!
