    I was letting the dog out last night and I walked right into this spiders web. It's about the size of a baseball. Brutally loud high pitched screams from me, (a 29 yr. old dude), soon followed for about 5 minutes. I made sure it wasn't on me and then I noticed the evil looking face it has on it.



    I don't have to judge people, I just watch and learn.

    No clue what kind it is, but be glad you weren't armed at the time.

    I have these around my house every once in a while. Takes me by surprise while walking the dogs at night or taking the trash out. They take the web down just before sun-up.

    Orb-Weaving Spiders ...low risk - non-aggressive


    Venom toxicity - the bite of Orb-Weaving Spiders is of low risk (not toxic) to humans. They are a non-aggressive group of spiders. Seldom bite. Be careful not to walk into their webs at night - the fright of this spider crawling over one's face can be terrifying and may cause a heart attack, particularly to the susceptible over 40 year olds.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Spider Identification - an adult is about 2/3 to more than 1 inch in body length - has a bulbous abdomen - often colorful - dark to light brown pattern. The common Golden Orb-Weaver Spider has a purplish bulbous abdomen with fine hairs.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Habitat - often found in summer in garden areas around the home - they spin a large circular web of 6 feet or more, often between buildings and shrubs, to snare flying insects, such as, flies and mosquitoes.

    Oh man that spider looks super gnarly! I would hate to see what kind of bit it would leave on somebodies skin.
