The spider is called Arctosa Cinerea. It's a very rare, and yet unknown spider. My wife wrote a research about this spider. We had two at home, in a terrarium. Unfortuanetly both have died. This spider can be found in a large numer in North Romania, in the county of Maramures. We were a bit concerned about the spider, because nobody have ever made tests on this spider, and therefor we didn't knew that it's poisonous or not.
