Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Hi! I'd just like to know what this might be, was walking across the floor in a finished basement.
Some of the other photos that people post make this spider look like a house pet.
Thanks,
Joe

This looks like a woodlouse spider, Dysdera crocata.

Looks like a woodlouse hunter. I had one in my hair all day last summer and I didn’t know until it fell out when I took my hair down… definitely didn’t bite me even though it had every opportunity.

That’s an interesting way to learn more about a spider. I started wearing head wraps, like Buff, because I was usually carrying a forest in my hair. I got tired of people exploring the flora and fauna of my head like it was a nature hike. 🙂
