Get a load of this beauty! This is what I saw my dog sniffing on the patio of my new house. Wade and Connor said they had seen one the night before but didn't know what it was. It looks like a scorpion without its stinger. They are called Sun Spiders and they are nasty. According to my bug guy (yah, I called the next day!) they aren't poisonous, their bite just hurts like non other. And according to wikepedia they can get up to 4.5 inches (leg span) although snopes says up to 6 inches! My little friend was as big as my palm! Isn't that lovely?
So when did you say you were coming to visit?!
