I do not know what hate kind of spider this is. Very curious as to whether it isn’t poisonous or not.

Hi,and welcome to the site. Your spider is a female tropical orb weaver,Eriophora ravilla species.
These are not dangerous at all, may have been hiding for the day,at dusk they make a rather large orb web. Looks like she may even be gravid, looking for a place to hide eggs perhaps.

Hi, yes … this is a Tropical Orb-weaver (Eriophora ravilla). Like most spiders they have venom but are not considered to be of medical significance – everyone’s immune system is different though. They are unlikely to bite except in self defense (for example if pressed against skin). Welcome to Spider ID. 🙂
