Size: LARGE
Found this beauty in the bathroom after removing some floor clutter. It was slow moving. It’s movements similar to the way a tarantula moves. The body was fuzzy almost soft in appearance. It was very black on top but more brown or gray on the underbelly. It’s abdomen was very round and full.
