Spider Bios >> Maurice Grobblespit
Species: Steatoda Grossa
Gender: Male (originally thought to be female)
Favorite Food: Crickets
Ah, little Mildred Grobblespit was a mere spiderling when we received “her” at the center. She’s grown up a bit, but she’s still small…so much so now that we noticed that “she” is actually a “he”. Watching him take down a cricket is always amazing – especially since they’re about 15x his size. Little Mildred (now named Maurice), if he remains healthy, should be around for another year (males live shorter than females).
