Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Hello, This spider was found in Tampabay Florida. This looks like a Huntsman Spider but the pattern is different in my opinion. A huntsman spider has large black hairs that stick off it. This one looks like a snake's skin type pattern (diamondback). It was very large about 5 inches wide. There were two of them both about the same size under a tarp that was in my front yard overnight. I flipped over the tarp and two of these guys were looking at me. It was so large, I could see it running across my grass as it ran away.
