I was nearly killed this morning. I arrived at the office, and a predator was waiting for me. No, it’s wasn’t ninja duck. It was a more ancient evil, a beast of legend, a giant on the face of the Earth. It could have been an epic battle…but the thing was already dead. Or cool enough to let himself be measured and narcissistic enough to get photographed.
Ok, so not very epic I guess but, still the largest wild spider I’ve actually been able to look at up close. I’m sure I’ve encountered one larger at some point but they always see me first and all I see is their giant form as they scurry underneath a log or something.
So, who knows what kind of spider that is pictured above?
