Comments & ID Thoughts

Don't know for sure but maybe a Common house spider. Big guy was roughly quarter size. I'm going to assume he crawled from my crawl space, he was in the hallway/doorway leading to crawlspace.

Welcome!

Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance to people and are unlikely to bite except in self defense.
