    This is my new pet Fluffy. I found him in an inground storage box I have in my house. I don't want to kill him and will look to relocate him soon, but want to know whether I am going to lose an arm in the process.

    that hole near him is the size of a 20 cent piece so that should give you reference for how big it is

    My wife is totally arachnophobic so any spiders in our house are killed first and questions asked later. I doubt it is very venomous, though could be a Trapdoor but if you wear gloves you can catch it easily and then let it go elsewhere!

    I dont want to let it go just yet. It isn't doing any harm to anyone. Leanne won't be happy when she sees it but I plan on scaring the crap out of her with it later.

    For now the little sucker can stay in his little hidy hole

    you need to wait till she falls a sleep, then steal the pants back and start wearing them again!

    ...and then have to put up with a woman who you have given a phobia of spiders to and spend your time triple checking her shoes for her before she puts them on every morning!!

    I wouldn't let her keep a jar beside the bed, she is too clumsy. just because she beat up Doug doesn't mean she wears the pants

    It looks like a Huntsman to me, but it isn't a very good photo. Is the body pretty flat ? Google the name and I'm sure you'll find some photos to compare with what you've got. They're not venemous as far as I know.

    Its body is more rounded than flat.

    Looking at it and pictures of huntsman it looks pretty different when it is on the wall or on the floor, in the corner it is hard to tell
