Spider

Post by poochpamperer » Thu Sep 04, 2008 10:05 pm

I found this spider outside my friend's house when I was up in BC Canada,
I was wondering what type of spider it is...

It is about the total size of a quarter. I looked around a bit on the internet, but couldn't find anything, not really knowing what to look for.

Cross Orbweaver <-- this is common spider here in Europe, not dangerous unless you are allergic to its venom

In spider's bodies the usual arthropod segments are fused into two tagmata, the cephalothorax and abdomen, joined by a small, cylindrical pedicel.

Ok, so you have proved the you can copy and paste from wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider
but what does your little wikiblurb have to do with the question?

He is a spammer. Do not answer and even worse quote the link in the signature (there to improve their search engine classification). The mods are dealing with that but it takes a bit of times thanks.
Now back to our regular questioning.
