Hey, I found this spider in my back yard the other day. It isn't a very good picture, because it was dark, but I thought you might be interested.

It's body was about the size of a golf ball and it had visable fangs.

Gold back with a black markings.

It's web spanned over 8 feet across and was quite thick and hard to break. It was at least as thick as sewing thread.

I was very impressed with him.

I have fruit trees which draw insects which draw spiders...

Anyway here is his picture:

It's a biggun, that's all I know.

With imported produce it could be just about anything.

I live in South Bend, Indiana, near Notre Dame.

Yes, knowing my luck I would sit down in the swing and it would break the web, flinging the spider into my face.

Here is a better picture of the beast close up:

It almost looks a little like the cat spiders we have here in Alberta. They get really big like that and have super tough webs as well.

The cat spiders though are a little puffier I think.

Yikes! I'd be freakin!

I dunno, I thought he was pretty neat, I didn't want to kill him or anything.

He definetly wasn't hurting anything. I have at least 100 spiders in my back yard, after a heavy dew or rain you can see their little webs in the grass, it's beautiful.

**Shivers** I don't do spiders. I think I would just die on the spot if it were in my backyard! LOL! My first thought would certainly NOT be to grab the camera....

Immatater i am with you. I found an inch long black widow on my back fence and just wanted it DEAD. The other half on the other hand was waiting for the right light to get a picture.

Yeah, I admit that I take spiders back out side if they come in my house and I dont kill them...

Cockroaches, however, die if I catch site of them outside....

I am totally terrified of spiders! I do not like them! We get huge black widows and cat spiders here. We also get huge, nasty, jumping wolf spiders (somehow they always get into the house) and I get my husband to kill every last one of them. I'd do it if I wasn't sooooo afraid!

I know spiders are good for keeping insects down and sorry to you spider -lovers . .but I kill 'em!

Oh, I think they are pretty cool, but I don't love them.

I wouldn't want to keep one but I don't want to kill them either.

It is just a reg. weaving spider as mentioned. A very good hunter and also good luck if found around your garden.

Males are about 1/3 the size or smaller. Also males are always on the move. They are in search of the female.

We know where some of our variety of spiders in the house are hiding when we see a pile of drained, stray crickets that had escaped from what would have been a quick demise in one of our froggies' bellies.

MY goodness, i'm gone for a few weeks and people want me to eat a spider,lol.

We have huge spiders around our house, not the size of golf balls but the big ones could be getting close to that size.
