Can you ask it to pose next to a quarter or a tennis ball so we can gauge the size? :grin:

THe spider did not want to hang around. I would guess it to be 1/2 to 5/8" round though.

The only hairy spider I know of is a tarantula...do you have them out your way? IF so, maybe a baby? IF so, there's a lot more where that one came from.

Them type of things help me justify grinding out the winters here in Michigan.

Thanks for posting the pic and giving me another reason to stick it out.

Looks a lot like a Bold Jumping Spider... but not sure... check Bug Guide

thats the kind, and size of spider that meets the bottom of my flip flop if it comes anywhere near me.... hopefully he would not hit me back with my flip flop, judging from the size of him in the photo i may need something a bit bigger...

I recommend you carry a shotgun...

Even if it was just a wet spot with a quarter next to it would've helped judge the size :)

Trap door spider is my guess... I'll keep my snakes over that creepy looking thing!

There are two kinds of spiders:
Ugly and Dead, respectively.

Thanks for reminding me. They are very much found throughout the continent however.

It's a Panamanian Ooga Booga Jumping Spider.

All spiders are Panamanian Ooga Booga Jumping Spiders in my book.

Well . . . it is Northern California so it could be Nancy Pelosi.

Naaaa . . . it's not ugly enough to be her.

Maybe if it had bigger fangs.

Hey aln, don't know what kind of spider it is, but how's your salmon season going down there? I'm up north awaiting the month end opener. Halibut has been fantastic this year out of Eureka. chris

Haven't been out yet as it's a little early. Some good reports of fish taken out of Bodega out at the 50 fathom curve from Pt Reyes to the Russian river. Strange that very small counts are being recorded in the Half Moon bay area. Usually that is reliable. Fish up to 30 lbs are being taken when weather permits, which is to say snotty. That doesn't stop these guys. After 2 years of no fishing they will risk their parents lives to catch something. Here is a link to our most reliable fishing reports.

I'll end the Pelosi speculation and say that it is one of 500 species of jumping spiders.

Carry on

Where does the T-top spider live?
