Found a biggie this morning knocking at the front door to get in.
I thought it was a baby tarantula so I scooped it up for pictures later, turns out it isn't a tarantula. :banghead

Oddly enough I caught one of these two years ago in the garage, I mean the exact same thing. Had I known what it was I would probably have moved back then. :laugh

Did you know that the Brown Recluse is the only species of spider to have just three sets of eyes? I didn't.

Pics to follow......

Actually, in reading of what a brown recluse spider bite can do to a person, I'd be killing it as fast & remotely as possible!

MT should be posting pics up of what his last recluse bite did to him. When you see that you'll know the guy is :coocoo for catching it and not killing it outright.

I would too, but considering his history with these spiders I'd also feel really bad for laughing as well.

Sorry 4 the Delay, I meant Picture to Follow as in "Later". :laugh

Here's the meager shots I got with my cheapo camera, i might get some better ones with my daughters nice camera when she gets home.

Enjoy.



It's in one of those tubes that you get with a shammy thingy to dry cars with.


Kind of fascinated with it at the moment, will dispose of it soon I'm sure.

Here's a little better pic of it, they've got like 3 sets of 3 eyes. You can somewhat see the fiddle back violin shape going back towards its rear - easier to see up close in person.
