good spider or bad spider ? - Cheiracanthium

good spider or bad spider ? - Cheiracanthium
Manteca, San joaquin County, California, USA
September 23, 2007
Size: 1/2 "
I have seen this Spider in my yard many times , but don't know what kind it is and am hoping it is not a yellow sac or any other poisonous Spider . It seemed to run towards my hand as I was admiring a rosebud and I need to make sure it isn't one of those bad guys . I do enjoy the jumping spiders and the Lynx spiders and garden spiders , among many more that are interesting to watch and enjoy , but am not certain about this very light yellow Spider . Thanks for any comments , Beth

it is
Look at the eye arrangement on any pictures and it is unique. this is definitely a yellow sac. Don't be too worried, though, because they live inside of my house and I have never been bitten before. Besides, You'll notice if one does bite you, because it hurts right away and you can go to the doctor. You'll be fine. :)
