Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm hoping someone can tell me what kind of spider this is. It was found behind a dishwasher of a trailer. I believed it to be a fishing spider by comparing pictures, but seeing an article on fishing spiders, those pictures did not look the same. I have kept it as a pet and it is surviving on meal worms in a home-made terrarium. I can provide more pictures should anyone require them.

looks like a dark fishing spider (dolomedes tenebrosus). don’t take my word for it, since i can’t really tell any smaller details from the picture.
