Courtesy of us we are offering a small juvenile Viridasius sp wandering spider, these are a non aggressive species that prefers to run rather than stand its ground. they are from madagascar and are arboreal, preferring 75% humidity and a temp of around 23°C

The competition is open to any member of BN and rules are as follows
1. One entry per member
2. photo should be a head / face shot of your chosen invert
3. competition will run for one week from today 23/04/13 and will end at 10pm on 29/04/13
4. the winner will be announced both here and on the bug nation FB page on 30/04/13
5. finally, as always this is a 100% free prize, EXOPET will cover postage and the prize and it will be posted via RMSD

Thanks for your contributions
Paul and Tracey
