That isn't even very big. I have seen huge female wolf spiders here with about an inch and a half long by three quarter inch wide body plus the
legs. I thought I was seeing something unusual. I sprayed it with carb cleaner to kill it so the wife wouldn't see it and make me spray all the
wolf spiders around the house. They are not a threat, actually they are good at keeping bugs down.
I saw a big spider on top of a 2x4 wall on an addition to a camp I was building here. It's body was about three and a half inches long and it was
about two and three quarters inches wide. It's body was about a half inch thick and it had short legs that were bent up on top the wall. It still
was end to end on the two by four.
We knocked it off and it clunked when it fell and died. It wasn't really that heavy, but it split when it fell. The owner took it to the local
university where he left it for the professor. It was some sort of a pine spider, The professor said that these spiders are harmless and there are
many of them out in the woods. Well, harmless unless you piss them off I suppose. I got bit a few times by harmless spiders, they make your finger
look like clown fingers.
But I am still not afraid of them. If you don't purposely disturb them they don't seem to get mad. Don't tease them like the video does, they
will jump at you. It is best to kill them if you hurt them. Same with a lot of bugs. I think they have a good memory. I think that way from
experience, not from scientific evidence.
