Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This is the second one I've found on the floor in my bathroom. They both were black and I would say medium size didn't see any other color on them. I live in west Texas, El Paso, which is a border city to Juarez, Mexico. I have 2 daughters 5 yr old and a 2 month old, which means im not getting much sleep since finding the first one, so if anyone can please help we would truly be thankful

It’s a harmless ground spider of the family Gnaphosidae. These spiders actively hunt other insects and spiders too. They are harmless to humans. Spider DO NOT seek out humans to bite, theyd much rather run and hide if disturbed… they do catch the flying insects that bite us though.
