Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was in my car that was parked outside with the window down. It looked like he had tiger stripes on his legs. When I went to knock him off my front dash of my car, he fell but he was attached to a piece of web, so he hung in the air. I didn’t get him!!! I do not want to kill him but I want him out of my car. Thanks
