I found this spider in the corner of my bathroom, and I photographed it after taking it outside. When first approached, it displayed the classic defensive posture of raising it's front legs up, but I think it quickly got used to me. Any help identifying is appreciated.

Yeah, it closely matches the sac spiders posted in the guide. Thanks, Tom!
