I don't know what kind this is but it freaks me out. It has a brown fuzzy body, sharp legs that are orange/reddish.

Hi, this is an Orb-weaver (Araneidae), likely a Hentz Orb-weaver (Neosocna crucifera). Only filing to family though as the Tropical Orb-weaver (Eriophora ravilla) is another similar possibility and I can’t make out the details as well as I’d like. 🙂
