The field trip on the Domaine de Restinclières, within the Faune Group of the Ecologists of the Euzière, ended on a without fail: we were able to observe a maximum of the bestiary of the site!

The star of the day: the mason tarantula (Nemesia caementaria) was very cooperative and was shot from all angles! She left us some beautiful pictures!

The Jumping Spider "with eyebrows" (Aelurius v-insignitus), the Velvet Epeire (Agelenatea redii) and the Yellow Scorpion (Buthus occitanus) of Languedoc were also there!

Around the pond, one could also encounter a quantity of wolf-spiders (Lycosidae), Linyphiidae in the surrounding bushes and especially two snakes (Natrix maura) actively hunting!

In short, a busy afternoon! Which will gladly renew! 🕷
