Haha they are so fast and jittery its like when someone is that frightened they scream and it goes right through you. Segestria Florentina looks awesome, but would you see them much? Atypus Affinis looks nice too but may stay pretty well hidden also. I guess Dysdera Crocata could be pretty interesting. Or maybe a wolf spider. I need to have a look what the shops have got in, they dont seem to have much in at the moment,hoping to find a spider shop with a bit more stock.

I'd rather a spider I could see actively hunting and see out and about if possible rather than a sedentary pet hole or webbing species

I also forgot to mention I saw a housie with 5 legs crawl up my living room wall, could this be a male having disturbed a female's web?

Appears to be a female that has either had a bad moult or been attacked as I can't see any "boxing gloves".

I do like Misumena vatia.
Used to find them frequently when I was living down south
