Do you know what type of spider this is? It is about 4" in size
Please let me know if you have any ideas as to what kind of spider this is. It was my first thought when I saw it, is it poisonous? And 2, it has similar colors to a timber rattler, a type of diamond back rattler.
Hi, it’s a fishing spider in genus Dolomedes. They inhabit the same wooded types of areas as Timber Rattlers. I think the markings pattern on them resembles the bark on a tree trunk (or fallen branch).
