How big are they now? And how bug do they get? Care requirements etc..?

They look fascinating

Cheers

They're probably about 3-4 inch leg span and will need to be kept in a warm room either free range or in a large tank or frame as they are orb weavers. These are an egyptian species, so I'd imagine they're happy with being dry, but the occasional spray probably wouldn't do any harm.

If you haven't kept orb weavers before, you're in for a treat as they are just seriously cool spiders. Argiopes especially because they build a really pretty web with zigzag patterns on and then they sit in the middle in a cross shape.

They don't need anything like as big a space as a Nephila - when I have seen Argiopes in the wild, their webs are usually fairly modest in size, maybe a couple of feet in diameter.

argiope build webs up to a maximum of 36" or so in diameter with the zig zag stabilimenta that has been mentioned, they are an awesome species and enjoy a LIGHT misting of the web early in the morning
