Hi Bugman! We are putting our best efforts into classifying this spider. We are having a hard time deciding which one it is!
PLEASE HELP! Found in garage, really scary looking!
Signature: Scared of spiders 🙁
Dear Scared of spiders,
This is a harmless Orbweaver. Though they might look scary, they are not aggressive. Orbweavers spend their lives snaring prey from a classic orb spiderweb that they seldom leave. We believe they frequently become victims of Unnecessary Carnage.
Hi Daniel! We just captured it in a jar. We weren’t sure if it was harmful or not and have a 7 month old daughter so we wanted to be safe! There was no carnage involved 🙂
Now we will free it!
Good to know. Our mistake but it looked dead.
