Hi. I was able to clean this up enough to see dark fishing spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus.
This a pet or outside wall?
It was captured at my fiancees brother’s job in a warehouse he has it in a tank currently
Hi, do you know where the spider came from or can you manage a clearer image? It looks suspiciously like a Huntsman Spider (Heteropoda venatoria) which isn’t native to Ohio.
It was in my fiancees brother’s workplace he said it was a huntsman and I disagreed thinking it was a dark fishing spider, but I can’t let him know because he has me blocked unless i find the Instagram he made for it.
Just found a better picture and posted it
Hi. if this is the same spider, Itsy bitsy is correct, a Heteropoda venatoria huntsman spider.
The white bands didn’t show in your firs photo.
Odd these are not found north of the Carolinas and then only coastal states.
Likely a hitchhiker.
Also cool spiders, there are keeping guides for these, I question it would survive that far north.
ps: they are called cane spiders in Hawaii.
