Mystery Spider, Utah
My name is Sydney and I am eight years old. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. My aunt caught this wierd spider in her bedroom. No one in my family has ever seen this kind of spider before. Can you tell me what kind this is and if it is dangerous or harmless?

Hi Sydney,
This is a Sowbug Killer, Dysdera crocota. It is one of the few predators that will feed on sowbugs. They are harmless.
