Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this is what it is! I had to research to make sure it's a beneficial buddy.

Eriophora ravilla, the tropical orb weaver, is a species of orb weaver in the spider family Araneidae.

Are orb weavers good?
Orb weavers are very docile, non-aggressive spiders that will flee at the first sign of a threat (typically they will run or drop off the web).
They are not dangerous to people & pets, and are actually quite beneficial because they will catch and eat a lot of pest-type insects.

Here’s a link to one with the markings yours has https://spiderid.com/picture/54167/ Yes you got it! Eriophora ravilla. This one can be tricky because yours has one of the less-seen markings of the species. Great job!
