I caught a garden spider the other day and kept it in a terrarium. Put some plants in there and was planning to feed it those small crickets you get from the pet store. Unfortunately, Jess, my roommate, freaked. She made me get rid of it.
I liked that spider. Named her Doodles.
Anyway, Jess told me that she'd kill me if I ever tried to keep a pet spider again. Don't see how spiders are any worse than those rats of hers. Those things tails creep me out.
