You will need to enlarge the picture the see the spider
I have never seen any spider this big before in Nova Scotia
And it only has 4 legs
After enlarging the picture I see that it has 4 legs in front as well that are different color
Hi, this is a fishing spider. I think it’s a striped fishing spider, Dolomedes scriptus. It’s big but not dangerous.
Thanks for the identification and the fact that it is not dangerous
I’m not sure which of the Dolomedes species it is. Your Fishing Spider has interesting markings. I like how some of the legs don’t match the others or the body.
