Me and Mum got home from the rugby today and I went to open the door to get out of the carshed. Then I saw a massive bronze spider on the side of the door right next to the door handle. It gave my a massive fright because my hand was so close to touching it. When I saw the ugly big spider I yelled for Mum. Mum shrieked "yuck" and she said to me to go and get a jar with a lid. Mum put the spider in a bucket and she got the spider to climb onto the stick then we shook the spider off the stick into the jar. We took it inside and Googled information about the spider. Here is some of the information about the spider. The spider has two names and they are Vagrant Spider or Prowling Spider. It is one of 20 species of this breed of spider. A Vagrant Spider is medium to large in size. Its body length can get to 2cm. It is usually found under logs and big stones in native bushes and our gardens. They mainly come out at night to hunt and build there webs. They mainly eat ground dwelling invertebrates which means they love things like ants and beetles and grasshoppers. They can run very fast and stop suddenly and freeze. A male Vagrant Spider has longer legs and a slimmer body compared to the female. The male Vagrant Spider has a pink palp but some can be hairy. A palp is the sticking out things from their mouth that helps the spider eat and feel things. This spider has large fangs. This spiders bite is painful as a bee sting so be careful if you see a big spider like this. I now know that the spider I found is a male Vagrant Spider from using the information I found on Google. Thank you for reading my story.
