what is this?????????

Post by beanie » Mon Oct 10, 2005 7:31 am

ok i'll admit i'm a spider freak. i see them i freak. recently we tore an old roof off our house and there were different types of nests everywhere on the ouside of the building. spiders have since found thei way inside and they are huge (well to me). i finally got a decent pictre of one and would like to see if anyone can identify it as being anything specific. this has to be the 10th to 15th i've had to kill. i dont know how to get the picture i have onto this message body so if anyone can help with that, that'd be great.

It's either a wolf spider or grass spider. I'll say it's a grass spider, but to be 98% sure I'd need a closer picture. Completely harmless spiders.

Pretty big? Nah, I've seen some wolf spiders in excess of a 2" leg span. And a fishing spider that was larger than some of my tarantulas. Grass spiders can push about a 1.5" leg span.
