Hi, I found this spider outside while I was stacking wood. It’s pretty big, about the size of a silver dollar or bigger. I was wondering what it was and if it was venomous.
Thanks!

Dear Marissa,
You encountered a Fishing Spider in the genus
Dolomedes.  They have venom, but they are not considered dangerous to humans.  Fishing Spiders are generally found not far from water.
