Group Description

Here's a place where you can post pictures of spiders that you need to identify and want to know if they are venomous, or not.

Anyone can post.

1. Please only post pictures of spiders here.

2. When you add your photo to the pool, please include all information you have:

a. Where you saw/found it (geographic location [nearest town/city, area/state/county, country], please be specific as this is an international group)
b. Habitat (garden, roadside, beach, bathroom, shed or wherever!)
c. Size [cm or inches, please state] (it's often hard to tell scale from a photo).
d. Any other details that could help!

3. If you post your photos in the stream, keep in mind a written post will help to point people to your pictures.

4. If you find out what the spider is, either through comments or your own searching, please reply to your post not only to clarify that you no longer need help, but to help others!

5. When your spider is identified, please leave the pictures in the pool so others can learn from them.

This group has been created by the webmaster of 'The Tarantula's Burrow' which can be found at
