Intimidation Stare ;0)

Well I've had this "pet" for a few days now and its attitude hasn't improved. I will NOT be removing it from its home to photograph therefore I apologise for images taken through glass. The critter sure relishes crickets!

Very cool. I have actually seen the large fishing spiders eating small bream that I had raked up on the shore that had gotten mixed in with the thick vegetation being cleaned out. The fish spiders would rush over to the small bream and begin eating them.

That is so interesting. I have found by searching the net that they will eat fish & frogs. Must have been a surprising sight ;0)
