Hi. Anton will pose zero threat, one of the very harmless orb weavers.
Indoors, you may have to feed them a bit, they have quite an appetite for flying insects.
With a web established,won’t likely leave unless starved or driven out.
I had a video in the works how to keep these indoors, don’t see it getting finished though.
You might consider Antoinette for a name, this is a she. Looks like a cross orb weaver, but not certain.
Nice pet there.
