Comments & ID Thoughts
I found it at the bathroom door at around 6 am, but it disappeared after I came back home at 7:30.
I found it again at 7pm, and it was sitting at the door of my closet. It then ran off to a room that's full of boxes.

It was a bit larger than my hand (maybe around 15in).
Hi, this looks like a Huntsman Spider, Heteropoda venatoria. 🙂
Thank you! That’s what I was hoping for. I guess I’ll just leave her be and pray she gets rid of the roaches!
Any idea on whether it’s male or female?
That beauty is a female…male would have a dark mark on it’s back with very defined tan V. About as close to a domesticated spider as you can get, they hop in leaps as they escape when surprised.
