Froggy, Don't Read This!

Giant crab spiders have such a ferocious appearance that they earned a spot as extras in the horror film Arachnophobia. These creatures, however, eat only cockroaches, crickets, and caterpillars, more than compensating for their scary appearance. Giant crab spiders are about 2 inches long, are hairy, and have noticeable black fangs and black feet. Their egg sac is the size of a golf ball.

I intentionally did not include a photo.

Oooooooooh!
I not only read, I went to find out more information - I am never going to Arizona again!

Just yesterday I had my spider zapping electrical chamber of death out and bravely got one off the ceiling. I made Eldest take it outside, open it up and make sure the poor spider was fried.

I will catch jumping spiders, for some odd reason, and let them go - but the super sonic skuttlers are too scary to catch. They can be half way up your arm in a nano-second.

Okay, I need to go lay down now.
