Hello guys! I just found a male Arabesque Orbweaver. At least I think it is that species... feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken! ^w^ This adorable little spood was very shy, and once it realized my presence it started to shuffle deeper into the bark~ After a bit of research, I came to the conclusion that this was an Arabesque Orbweaver. Well, they live in Central Ohio (where this was taken), all the photos I've seen of them look like this guy, and they have been seen in midday (when this was taken) and can hang out in trees (where he is). I also know he is a male, because males are slimmer than females. Females are very CHONK-y, and the chonk level is the easiest way to differ the genders of these Orbweavers.
Well, that's it for now! I'll cya later, peeps!
