One young Catholic family farming.
We had a spider similar to that, maybe not as big but really not far off, (certainly the biggest i ever saw in person, not being at the zoo) he/she was just hanging out in our hallway. I didn't even know spiders that big existed in America! Lol! Needless to say, he wasn't around for long after I got the courage to smack him with a shoe and leave the evidence for Jim so he knew I wasn't exaggerating. miss u guys!
Omygosh! I hope I'm staying in the Lodge this weekend.Granny don't do spiders Danielson!!
Oh, that is a wolf spider - and yes they get big - but they won't hurt you. It's the creepy little ones that worry me!
HAve you forgotten how BIG spiders are in Florida? lol Banana spiders....
yea... those 2 spiders that were building webs near your flood light when I came to visit seriously grossed me out. Every time I walked underneath the web I couldn't help but thinking it was going to drop suddenly down my shirt and it would be all heavy and... ugh.
I totally killed one that big that my daughter, who at the time was not 12 months, carried out to me. We had just moved onto our farm and I was still unpacking everything. Pretty sure I screamed, did a heebiejeebies dance, searched for big shoes (a spider that size cannot be killed with a mere flip flop), sucked it up and stomped the daylights out of her/him/don't care. Have you seen the Al Capone Spider meme? That's what I turn into when I see any spider no matter how small...
