Comments & ID Thoughts

whose mans is this. approximately 1.5 inches long and in my bathroom - he appeared in the shower but has since migrated to the side of my cabinet. i would like to contain and free him but i am quite afraid. i am aware they they generally only bite when threatened and that i pose a significantly greater danger to him than he does to me but when i get very close the monkey brain kick in. knowing who he is will help me silence monkey brain so that i can contain him. help. i have no id guess i am sorry. there’s also one of the ones with red heads in my home - woodlouse, or something? but that’s a different spider

Hi. First this is a funnel weaver and most likely Eratagena genus. that narrows down to a very small giant house spider or hobo spider. Neither pose any threat to humans or pets.
I’m guessing this is a male wandering in search of a mate and looking for a drink of water.
In my place, I would just let him stay.
