Here’s one for you. This one’s about 5 inches in diameter from tip of one bent leg to tip of another bent leg. And this one isn’t even the largest spider I’ve seen here… Author: LMAshton

oh my, oh my, oh my!! I can’t stop looking at it even though it is probably the scariest thing I have seen all day! er…um, thanks for sharing? 😉
Yeah, that’s kinda how I feel about it, too. 🙂
I usually scream, or at least get really startled. Then tell Fahim to remove it – he takes them outside and sets them free. If he’s not around, I spray the heck out of them with bug spray because, well, I’m just not as nice as he is. 🙂
I just Googled banana spider, and we have a spider that looks very similar to the ones listed, but they’re not as big as this spider. It’s probably a related species. I have an image of that spider somewhere – just need to find it…
That’s a big spider. Do you ever run across banana spiders? I don’t know if they have a different name over there. But we have them here in Florida and they are huge.

I can’t believe that I am thinking this, but I love snow, I love snow, I love snow. I thought that my first instinct would be to step on it, but I don’t think I would do much damage to it. It is so kind that he lets them go but I’m with you… spraaaaay…..
*laughs* Yeah, there are days when I love snow, too. 😀
