What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Legged Big Fanged Black Bottom
Bugman,
I live just north of Sacramento, California (USA) and I found this spider under a raised, wooden flower bed on my front porch. I was hoping you could tell me what kind of spider it is and whether those massive fangs could do me any harm. Thank You,
Jessica

Hi Jessica,
We are nearly positive this is a Harvestman in the Suborder Laniatores. Harvestmen are also commonly called Daddy Long Legs and they do not have venom. Your photos are totally awesome. We suspect if we are correct, Eric Eaton might ask permission to post this beauty on BugGuide as well.

    We found one in El Dorado County also. This is the only pic I’ve found online that looks the same. I’d add pics but sadly, there is not a way to do that here!
