Jumping Spider. Fast little buggers. Watching them hunt for small bugs is cool, they are good at ambushing.

I don't know what kind it is, but if I saw it, it would be sprayed with brake clean, carb cleaner, and then set on fire.

Bold jumping spider

They're cool, harmless.

I have a huge one that hangs out inside. He likes to follow me around. Saw him in the bedroom this morning.

I doubt they are poisonous. Not sure why you would consider eating it tho.

Those are jumping spiders, really cool creatures and completely harmless, in fact they are good for eating all the little shitty flying fuckers around the house. Treat them well and let them be.

I get them in the house sometimes. Usually smaller than a dime. Had one last week that was bigger than a quarter though. Kinda bothered me seeing one of those fuzzy bastards that big

It is a jumping spider. Harmless. FYI all spiders are venomous, not poisonous. But the only two you have to worry about in the USA for the most part is black widows and brown recluse which contrary to popular belief do not live in CA. They occasionaly show up in shipments but have no known breeding populations. Salticids are my favorite spiders. They see exceptionally well and almost seem to have personalities. Their Australian relatives the peacock spiders are fucking hilarious.

Not arguing with you as you know better then anyone else on pirate about bugs. What are the spiders whos bite leaves a big area of nasty flesh like it was burned off? or a scar that looks like a burn scar?

They all fall within the Brown Recluse family, although not all of them are brown in color.

Another vote for jumping spider.

We have them all over the property, biggest one I've seen was about the size of a dime. One hangs out by the porch light in the evening.

I disturbed a HUGE wolf spider yesterday. I forgot we had them that big


*all predators are welcome around my place. I'd rather have them around instead of their prey
