Spider – Possibly Huntsman
Hey,
So I found a very large spider on the wall in my apartment. It is probably the size of average palm. When spooked it ran very quickly, not jumping much but moving sideways some. I am just wondering if it really is a huntsman or something else.

Hi Rae,
This is most certainly a Huntsman Spider.  It looks like a male Heteropoda venatoria, also known as a Banana Spider.
