Comments & ID Thoughts

My husband took this where he worked. He said it was huge. They get boxes and products from.overseas all the time and are always getting very freaky looking huge spiders where they work. I am terrified he is going to bring one home one day that could be poisonous.

Hi. Looks like a white banded fishing spider, Dolomedes albineus:

I guess the photo reveals a bit. Not much to be concerned over, been up close and personal with a few myself.
