Comments & ID Thoughts

Please tell me what spider this is. Also, it can't stay in my basement and has been living in the jar for over a week. It drank water I put in twice. It didn't go after large fruit flies (I have a worm farm in the garage and sometimes get them) nor a Box Elder Bug (that I just found on a window and then took back out of the jar.) I've been watching the weather and want to let it go outside under some bushes where there's no snow but not sure if it will freeze. It's been in my basement for a long time, never could catch it, finally caught it sitting on a laundry pile I was about to wash so it's not staying in the house.

Suggestions on when to let it out, next Thurs is better looking weather but not sure if it will starve. And what is it?
