Zoropsis new pet - Zoropsis spinimana

Zoropsis new pet - Zoropsis spinimana
San Jose , Santa Clara County, California, USA
April 4, 2020
Size: 2 inches
This big hairy spider was underneath a pile of pillows in our living room! Scared the crap out of me at first... thought wolf spider and looked up the markings. It’s pretty cool, and not a wolf! Wondered if this little rascal is female or male. And possible age? Also, we decided to keep it in a habitat as a pet for now. Any info as to how to keep it happy as a pet would be appreciated. Thank
You!
