Comments & ID Thoughts
Hi! Very interested in knowing what this little spider is. Maybe the size of a half-dollar including legs.
Uncovered it while pulling a tarp up in my back yard this past spring, but I couldn’t tell if it was hiding under mulch that got disturbed or within the folds of the tarp. It took me by surprise because of how thick it appeared and how substantial it’s fangs were. Not what I usually encounter in the yard.
Picture was taken about 12 miles north of Seattle, WA.
