Oh that's tiny! Look what we get here!! The huntsman, which is twice the size of the wolf spider http://www.amonline.net.au/factSheet...an_spiders.htm

Not dangerous either as far as i know, but really horrid. Imagine staring at something the size of a hairy saucer!

Ewwwwwwww! We have had a couple of those get in the house...they are harder to catch to kill too. Last one I made my brother catch.....I hate bugs. They look like mini tarantulas.

We have the hobos here. I saw one once, across the kitchen floor, and it was running at me Other than that, we have a lot of common garden spiders.

That is so cool! I love big spiders! I've held a baby bird eating spider in my old high school's science lab. Those things can get bigger than a sheet of regular printer paper! Wolf spiders are awesome too.

I leave all the spiders in my house to The Mighty Lord Linus Bug Killer Extraordinaire

I have nothing against spiders but feel since I don't try and live in their house they can stay the heck out of mine.

All mine are too lazy to go after spiders That's why I left it up to my son to kill it!

During the summer we had a one of those big black and gold spiders right outside the front door,out of the way of going in and out. He was about the size of my palm, and very pretty. He built a huge web and kept the mosquitoes from coming inside. His web was so beautiful! We left him alone, and he left us alone. One day he just took up his web and went away.

I'm telling ya, this thing was NOT quiet!
He was jumping at us! You could hear him hissing and even though Wolf Spider's aren't posionous, they can give you a painful bite
The last thing I needed was one of the kids or kitties getting bitten by it.
I've had one bitten by one and it's worse then a wasp sting

It was probably a banded garden spider. I have posted pics of one under Big Spider. These spiders are beautiful.

In Ukrainian tradition, finding a spider in your Christmas tree on Christmas morning is good luck! (Really!)
