Comments & ID Thoughts

I felt very light webbing at my legs when I went into my bathroom, but couldn't locate any spiders in the bathroom. But I saw this spider climbing up the wall when I went into my living room immediately after. It was about an inch across, had dark and light bands on the abdomen, and the legs were a light shade of tan.
