Green Lynx Spider

Spider on our lavender bush
November 22, 2009
We first noticed this spider on our lavender bush sometime in the spring. It was very green. Now it is brown and is holding what looks to be a ball of yarn, but we think it’s an egg sack. Is this spider dangerous? We have 3 small children who like to play outside.

Hi A.A.,
This beauty is our favorite spider, a Green Lynx.  It is harmless, though she will act aggressively if her egg sac is threatened.  Your children are perfectly safe.
