  3. I agree with the poster who said this spider is beautiful. I also agree with the poster who said this spider makes their skin crawl. Thing is, it's one of the deadliest spiders in the world and if bitten: it'll make anyone's skin crawl and heart stop. :D
    Luckily for me, Spiders of this nature are not in my immediate proximity. Just brown recluses and other dangerous looking beasts. Hehe.

  6. The photo is pretty cool. I would've run like a little girl and come back with a deodorant spray and a lighter to make sure she is VERY dead.
