Vermont spider or visitor from somewhere else? - Pisaurina mira
Middlebury, Addison County, Vermont, USA May 6, 2006 Size: 2+ inches
This spider greeted us in the bathoom one morning. As I am not a spider killer and it was really too big to step on, we carefully put it outside using the glass/paper trick. (It fit under a glass with not a lot of room to spare!) My husband worried that it might have been poisonous to humans and we shouldn't have put it outside, but I was just more curious as to why this spider showed up when we've never seen another one like it in Vermont ever. Any ideas?
