Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I was at the San Antonio River with my son today taking in the views. We never once got into the "deep brush" that would expect this guy to live in. We took the long scenic route home and then I went to bring in the trash can. Running down my neck onto my arm was this guy doing the scariest run imaginable. I took this picture then my son realised what I was doing and saved the day with his size 3 shoe! Moral of the story, never go outside AGAIN!

This is sad, she didn’t have to die. This was not a dangerous spider. Very few are. She was an Orbweaver, possibly Neoscona cruifera. There was plenty of time for either of you to gently move the spider off of you and back into nature. Learn what the Recluses and Widows look like. Everything else is safe. None of them attack on the offense, just defensively.
