    Theres abig debate on facebook. One group is insisting it's a brown recluse, the rest of us are sure it's not. Lol

    Yeah, definitely not a brown recluse. I had one of those shaking it's fists at me the start of last winter.

    I've been seeing some of those fat, short-legged furry buggers at work. I just figured it was a female something due to the size of its body. And the area I've been seeing them I'll see Hobo Spiders as it gets colder. So that's my guess. Female Hobo Spider.

    Wolf! Leg joints aren't sharp angles.

    not a brown recluse.

    I could guess a funnel web spider or a wolf from the size of the body

    brown recluse have legs far longer than their body. think skinny endurance runner for recluse, body builder for wolf spider, this guy spends time in the gym, not the track

    The only spider I can tolerate are “daddy long legs”. All others are demon spawn and as such should be hammered back to bowels of hell using the heel of your boot! Nasty.

    Looks like its about to lay a million eggs or babies!

    We had a wolf spider so big it made footsteps when it ran


    Also brown recluse have a violin pattern on the top of its body.

    Common wolf spider... the legs are not spindlely enough to be a recluse... they would be thinner and longer for a spider that size.

    I've always called them crack spiders, so I'd probably go with funnel web ( never knew the name,. I leave 'em alone and they take care of the bugs in my shed.

    I'm sure there's differences over regions but wolf spiders down here have the shape and coloration of this (random internet pic)

    And yeah, they'll get BIIIIIGG... I'll be mowing the yard and scare up one with a wingspan like a tennis ball. And Monday nights taking out the trash wearing a headlamp, the yard's lit up with the sparkle of wolf spider eyes so dense that I have to avoid them with every step... yes, I'm walking out there barefoot...

    We think alike! In reasonable quantities I'd even leave them alone in the house, but SWMBO simply will not tolerate them.
