Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider has little spikes on his body. I was bitten today. I'm a little concerned because I have never seen anything like this before. My dog was bitten by a brown recluse and died so I'm a little paranoid about unidentified things that bite me!

So sad about your pup. But this is not a spider at all (note the six legs rather than eight). This is a wheelbug aka assassin bug. I don’t believe their bite delivers any venom but am no expert by any means so please be sure to check on that bite.
