Default Argiope bruennichi

Got sent this lady by a worried horse owner who found them in her field and was concerned they would hurt her foals. She was quite scared of spiders but managed to usher it into a pot and send me it.

Are they native to the UK? Just wondered, cos I've never heard of spiders being a problem to horses in this country, but don't know a lot about that side of things....

Nice spider, are they orb weavers?

Yes she was found in Hertfordshire. With the latest media stunt about falsies a lot of people have been riled and she sent me the spider to rule out it being something dangerous. Afterall if you didnt know the spider the yellow and black would worry you.

Yes they are orb weavers

Shes around 1 inch body length. We are definitely keeping her, we cant release her because they are an invasive species

I wouldn't say they are invasive so much, just picky which areas they tend to live in. Chances are they are in Portsmouth already and have been for many years. I got sent a load of these last year about this time of year, and sadly they don't seem to do well and start dying over the next few weeks...
