Comments & ID Thoughts
It was already dead when I found it. I tried searching on multiple websites, but I couldn't find one that looked similar in size and markings. It was found on the window sill right next to the front door. I originally thought it was a wold spider, but the markings look slightly different so I was not positive. It is about the size of a quarter (including the legs). If anyone can identify it that would be great!!
