Comments & ID Thoughts

Here's another one we found just outside our front door. It made a big Web and has funny markings on its abdomen. Can you help me identify what type and if it's poisonous, please?

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Nephila sp.. Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance, everyone’s immune system is different though.
