CLOSED: A question baout a few bugs.

Belleair Beach, FL

If you can help me with identifying these bugs it would be greatly appreciated. I live in Florida near Tampa if that would be of any help. Sorry that the last picture repeated but I am new to forums and couldn't find out how to delete it. Thanks

#1 is a Cricket.
#2 is a Spider.
#3 is a spider carrying her babies on her ábdomen'.

More specifically, #1 is a Mole Cricket.
#2 is possibly a Wolf or Fishing Spider?
#3 is a female Wolf with babies.

Others can be more certain than I.

That link took me to Australian spiders. Pretty neat!

How about that,
You wait nearly three days for an answer.
And you get two in 9 minutes.
Some times the ball just needs to start rolling.

I wish I'd seen this sooner. Huntsman's get huge! Never seen one except in pictures. Can you handle them?

We treat them as Pets.

We have Jumping Spiders and Wolfs. I relocate them when they get real big but, other than that, they get to go wherever they want.

He looks like a walrus. LOL

Each leg is about 4" long.

The spider in the second image does not really look like either a wolf or fishing spider; it could be a huntsman -

I agree Flapdoodle. It looks more like Heteropoda venatoria, Huntsman spider than a Wolf Spider.

Ginger749 - Where is Ozz? Presumably not in Kansas.

Ozz is nickname for Australia...Aussie=Ozzie=Ozz

Ah, I knew it looked wrong. Thanks, FD and Moon.
