One of the places I fish has a lot of cypress trees, on these cypress trees are some BIG brown fury spiders! I don't know what they are called but I have seen some of them get 10+ inches from front to rear, the body gets a few inches but the legs are long. I'll try to take a picture next time I go.
Killed a black widow that thought she was gonna make a nest in the bottom cabinet of my grill last week. Reached in to turn on the tank and it was about 3 inches from my hand, I sprayed the hell out of it!

Yup it is, I googled the banana spider and got a couple of pics that looked like this guy and some that didn't. Anywho I tried to kill him and he got away fast into the bushes. As you can see there was nothing behind him to complete the crunch, got to get him tomorrow before he gets my cats or dog. Last time I ever buy any kind if tropical plants, damn things where expensive too.
I'm barefoot, so stepping on it is not an option. I grab a rag to smash it....
Ever see the animal planet channel shows? Some of the spiders that carry their young on their back?????
When pulled the rag off of that spider and hundreds of little black specks ran across the floor.....
I don't scream like a girl much, but I figure I did that time......
