I just caught a spider and its in a large coffee jar now. I'm from england and its one of the ones with small elongated bodies and long legs. I have put a fly and a meal worm in there already just wondering what else it might eat and what i should put in the jar to make it more comfortable lol. We have loads of meal worms it can have cos we have a lizard and we have hoppers sometimes but i presume id have to kill them for it first cos they would kill him. Do they eat things like ants and woodlice? Can I have a list of what they eat? Thanks.

Your pet sounds like a pholsi (daddylongleg spider) They will eat nearly any insect that they can overtake in their web. spiders are not fond of ants,and several can kill a spider.
Pinhead crickes,mealworms,and woodlice would be fine.
You might find a larger container for a terrarium,and give it a place to hide in the dark(a hideout).
Find out what species this is,and google for a care sheet. that would help a lot.
As their legs are very delicate, you should refrain from handling your pet as much as possible.
good luck.
