Yesterday by chance we had the opportunity to own a spider as a pet in our uni accommodation and so after my flat mate transferred him from underneath a glass cup to a plastic container, we named him Roger. And after a fairly lengthy conversation with my best friend on MSN he recommended me a full name for Roger and boy was it a name; Roger Aragog Jr. Alexander. A name with nice references to Harry Potter and the last name of one of my good friends lol.
Well, our spider is not quite as big or as cool-looking as this, but Roger is still pretty amazing!
As for our spider, he’s a fairly big lad, with long legs and he’s always crawling around the container or just chilling on the sides just waiting until someone shakes the container. One of me flatmates isn’t too kind on Roger and is actually afraid of him, so Roger has his supporters and his non-supporter so we’ll see how long this lasts. But heck we welcome Roger Aragog Jr. Alexander into our flat as our new pet with open arms 😀

That spider looks poisonous… maybe its because of that red mark on its body.

You mean the red hourglass that marks it as a black widow? I can only assume it’s dead. Okay, back to hunting for pictures of fuzzy jumping spiders.
