I found this spider in a flower pot with a colony of ants. The spider appeared to be trying to avoid the ants and was constantly being climbed on. In the pot also were 7 snails of varying sizes. The spider was moved to a different plant because the pot was to be emptied, and when i picked up the spider there were at least 6 ants still holding onto the spider. The ants would bite only the spider's foot and could not be removed by the spider. The spider was moved to a different plant without ants, climbed under a leaf and stayed there.
This spider was found laying with legs 1 and 2 close together in the front and legs 3 and 4 in the back in the corner of the door frame of my house. There was some webbing although i didn't get a photo of it. The web was moderately small(2-3 cm in length) and was not very thick. The spider was moved using the tupperware container shown to the deck railing. Once there, the spider quickly started to spin a web under the railing. It appeared to have 4 parts to its spinnerets. This spider was about 2 cm in body length and is compared to the bottom of the tub, which was about 8 cm on all sides. The weather was cold and the spider moved slowly and when i went to check on the spiders location later in the day hen it was warmer, it was gone.
