Comments & ID Thoughts

I've found these spiders at our backyard inside my guinea pig cage I was looking for spiders because ever since i bought some I've been having fun letting them crawl on my hands these spiders seems to have their 2 front legs longer then usual 1 of them have bumps on the back the other doesn't have them so i guess they grow a little bigger than this.

Hi, these looks like Cribellate Orb-weavers (Uloboridae), Zosis geniculata. Spiders in this family are unusual as they lack venom glands!
