Hi, the photo isn’t clear enough to identify. Please submit a focused picture if you can. It can’t be added to this post, but you can post a photo as a new posting.

Hi, this should be a male Huntsman Spider, Heteropoda venatoria. (Gender based on what appears to be a black pattern on the carapace.)
