Default Unusual true spiders.

You do see a few true spiders on sites etc, but they tend to be a lot of species of huntsman, which imo, are not esp attractive spiders, but it is less common to see some spiders which I think are interesting, and may make an intriguig addition, to those that do collect.

For example, the Assassin spider( pelican spider ) is a real oddity.

Crab spiders are one of the most fascinating spiders.

Eresidae are just absolutely fascinating and not commonly kept over here

males generally have the red abdomen - often commonly known as ladybird spider - females are generally a mix going from jet black to light grey

Nice colouration.

Very small though, right?
