How To Choose The Right Name For Your Spider?

Spider pet names can be tough. You want something that’s going to capture the essence of your new friend, but you also want a name that isn’t going to get stuck in your head and haunt you forever.

Luckily, we’ve got some tips on how to choose the perfect spider name for your arachnid buddy.

First things first: no spiders in the family. Spiders are not kittens or puppies, so try not to anthropomorphize them too much—they won’t appreciate it!

Second: don’t overthink it. You don’t have time for that right now. Just pick a name that feels right in your gut, and let it go from there!

Third: focus on the spider’s personality. Your new pet has a lot of character, and you need to honor that. What kind of quirks does he have? How does he interact with other spiders? These are all things to consider when naming your arachnid buddy.

Fourth: consider the species. Your spider is part of a whole ecosystem, so it’s important to give him a name that reflects his role in that ecosystem. Does he eat insects? Is he venomous? What kind of webs does he build? All this information will help you choose the perfect name for your new pet!

Fifth: pick something that sounds good with the word “spider”. This will help you remember what you named him in the future, should you need to refer to him again.

It’s important to know that your spider won’t be able to talk back. He’ll probably just kind of sit there and look at you with those creepy eyes, but this doesn’t mean he won’t appreciate a nice name. So get started on naming your new pet today!

About Spiders

In a world where arachnophobia is a common condition, encountering spiders in any environment can be creepy, but in your own home, the feeling is intensified.

In truth, spiders are beneficial creatures. Given the reputation through movies, books and personal encounters of being vengeful, on the attack and dangerous, most people unthinkingly crush the spider under their heel without hesitation. Contrary to the opinion of many, spiders do not seek out human contact, and do not revel in the thought of biting humans. Most prefer to go about their business eating insects in their own world, and only bite humans out of a defensive mechanism.

The term “house spiders” applies to only three types of spiders in the United States. Commonly known as the Hobo Spider, the Common House Spider and the Giant House Spider, the three are actually very similar in appearance. Two of these, the Hobo and the Giant, have a range that is limited to the Pacific Northwest, with rare occurrences of the spider being documented as far east as Utah and Montana. Obviously, there are other spider species that come into the homes of people; however, the common house spider is the most prevalent.

Spiders live everywhere on Earth with the exception of Polar Regions, peaks of high mountains and in large bodies of water. Their main purpose throughout their life span is to feed upon prey. All arachnids are predators, eating more insects as a family than birds eat. Their diet consists of specific insect types, and some of the larger spiders commonly eat small invertebrates such as lizards and frogs.

A Few Quick Spider Facts

Spiders lay eggs to reproduce. There can be a dozen or several dozen eggs. The female weaves a little silken sac around the eggs and places them in an out-of-the-way place where she thinks they will not be disturbed. Some spiders carry the sac on their bodies until the baby spiders are born.

At birth the little spiders immediately take off, scattering about to find a spot of their own on which to cling and build their first web. Outdoor spiders are often carried by the wind and make their home wherever they land–sometimes far away from their original location.

Female spiders are generally larger than male spiders. Some females even eat male spiders.

Spiders can have either six or eight eyes, depending on the species.

Most spiders do not live more than a year but there are tarantulas in captivity who have lived to be over twenty years old.

Spiders provide a great service to man by controlling insects which can carry disease and destroy crops.
