Hahaha! Good for you for being adventurous!!! I have never seen G. cancriformis in the wild.

State/national parks are such amazing places! The last couple of photos I have submitted were from a national park in the Caribbean and I had never seen either species before. However, compared to where I live, there are almost no spiders to be found. Their equivalent here seems to be little curly-tailed lizards.
