    I caught this monster in my house a few minutes ago. Saw it outa the corner of my eye on the tile floor. I thought a kitten had wandered in while I was carrying in groceries from my car. It's a big one. It would about eclipse a quarter if standing directly above it. It's fast. I dropped a shoe box over it as it was fleeing. Screwed a lit on the jar I used to trap it just as the slut went bonkers and acted like it was gonna fricassee my ass through the glass. Can't find any clear matches on line for it. Anyway, it will soon be sleeping with the fishes.

    Don't know a lot about spiders, but I've seen Spiderman about 20 times.

    Yep, it looks like a big jumping spider, the kind that catches sparrows.

    It looks to be "built" like a jumping spider. That was my immediate thought - but that's a big booger, if it is.

    I'd be freaking out too. That last picture looks like a happy condom ant is coming to kill you.

    It’s a big jumping spider. One of the only cool spiders in my book. Let it live. It will kill lots of stupid bugs around your house. They are not poisonous.

    I couldn't have helped with identification myself other than I would have been freaked out too! I don't like bugs...I know, spiders are arachnids, same thing lol. I got no problem with spiders outside but don't come into my house!

    I saw what I think was a wolf spider in the garage not long ago. It was f'n huge! It was in the garage so I figured I'd leave it be to do its thing but it made me jump when I first saw it lol.

    Just by the looks of those eyes it’s a kind of jumping spider. It’s bite can hurt if it’s like the one that bit me.

    That is a Sonoma Psy-Spider. While physically trapped, it still has the ability to invade your dreams and destroy your mind from within. My suggestion is to figure out how to deplete it's mana. Also, it recognizes you now, and these things are known to harbor a lifelong grudge so whatever you do, don't set it loose. Then there's it's bite....

    Or it could be this:

    Either or. :dunno
