Comments & ID Thoughts

I took a small video of it walking as well. It was found in a backyard inside a tent. I'm not sure if he dropped in or crawled in.

This is not actually a true spider but a member of a related group. It is a Red Spider Mite, part of the Acari group of Arachnids. Some spider mites can be serious pests of plant crops.
