Hello! I found this spider in one of the little hills in Cabo Pulmo. She was on her web and about 4 or 5 cm long. This was during late October. I would like to know the species and if it is venomous or not. Thank you!

Dear OBZ,
This Silver Argiope is considered harmless to humans, though like most spiders it is venomous, but the venom does little more than cause local swelling in the unlikely event a person is bitten by this non-aggressive Orbweaver.
