    LOL!! I think it was around 3-4 inches (including legs). Mom said that when she was young (whoooo... LOL) there were a lot of them around... but that it has been a long time since she saw once. Personally I've never seen one like that. The biggest I have seen around here were like 1.5 inches (including legs).

    I think thats a brown recluse. Stay away from it. If it is it has the potential to seriousally injure or even kill.

    OMG! It is a recluse! Stay away from it! It is worse than a black widow. Search on google Brown recluse. You can see for yourself

    All im sayin is if I had a choice of being bitten by a rattler or a recluse, id choose rattler any day.

    Hmmm.. I did a small photo search and doesn't looks like it to me... look at the abdomen.. on a brown recluse it's rounder and the union between it and the torax/head is thinner.

    Also, it looks hairier to me... I'm not an spider expert, though

    I know one when I see it. They are mostly east coast midwest spiders. Luckly im far away now in Cali. I used to live in Indiana where there were lots of em. You don't have to take my word. All i'm sayin is when you wake up with a big welt on your arm, remember I warned you.

    This spider was WAY bigger than 2 inches... that's for sure...

    Either way, trust me when I say I can't do much... this pic was truly taken on saturday... and in my house.. I'm at my apartment (3 hours from home) right now, and it's 1 am... I would have to deal with it tomorrow when I get home...

    Dark if this is the spider i'm claimin it to be then This is serious. No joke, The venom from a brown recluse has been compaired to the rattler and it is the worst spider venom in the states.

    I have never seena 2-4 inch brown recluse in my life. I have seen quarter sized as they used to be in one of my houses basements. my mother has been bit by one and her she has to pick her leg of dead skin otherwise her skin on her leg would be totally black... it looks horrible and she has been doing this for years.
