I found one similar but more brownish. Same fuzzy legs and black claws things
Wow, that spider looks soooooo much like this one except the upper body is so large on yours. Slight variance. I think I’m gonna research yours to see if I can identify it. May be in same family or something? Or maybe the spiders like mine have several color variations?
Thank you. That would be greatly appreciated. I agree. How big was yours?
With legs, no bigger than a dime.
The one I found was also very mean.
The one I found was wandering around and kept to itself. No web which is why I thought to look at specifically males. Most of the pics on the web are of females. I think yours is for sure a male orb weaver but I am not sure which subspecies. I am leaning toward Marbled Orb Weaver but I am not sure yet. If it is orb weaver it is 100 harmless.
That is a good guess. I will keep looking as well
Google Male araneous marmorious. It is a little more red than your pic but the closest I could find so far. That spidey is very common too.
Thank you. That sure does resemble it a lot.
I think the Male neoscona arabesca is also a good candiate….also an orb weaver.
Such a great picture… and amazing insight… anyone here willing to give a stab at the spider pic I posted…. still unidentified reaching out for some help my family hates I’m protecting and feeding it but it’s a huge part of my day just really curious as to what type it is
Thank you. 🙂 I will definitely check out your friend.
Thank you we are having a debate mainly between grass spider or giant house spider
