I like to have my hand in photos of big spiders too. 🙂 This is a Joro Spider. They’re a newly accidentally introduced species to USA via Georgia. I recommend searching the legend of Joro Spiders, there is a cryptid myth, like Big Foot, unicorns, and Nessie that goes with them. This is a nice photo angle, the side view, that we can use for reference.

You know, these and T. clavipes are one of few spiders they let children handle at bug fairs.
makes for a nice selfi.
