Is it a pet? It looks like a Huntsman Spider, Hetropoda venatoria. They aren’t native to to US. They’re an introduced species to the Gulf states and have been spreading from there If you purchased or traded it please let me know so it doesn’t skew the range data. If you found it wild indoors please submit a photo to Bugguide.net also. They have some specialists that track the expansion and decline of species ranges.


Thank you for the extra info. https://bugguide.net/node/view/6930/data The link shows the states that their photos have been submitted from to Bugguide.net Another possibility is that it is a Fishing Spider in family Pisauridae.
