Wednesday Madness – picture guess????
OK this was found in Gilbert, Arizona in a closet – Arizona Brown Spider or Brown Recluse Spider. Now I know spiders travel and can make it to almost any state in the U.S. but generally speaking I think I would have to go with the Arizona Brown Spider (Loxosceles arizonica) not that I’m ever going to get close enough to the spider anyway.
I do think spiders get a bad rap but if they would just stay outside I think most of us would be OK with them.
