Last night I photographed a spider high up on my bedroom wall. I used my camera so that I could zoom in and then I used my Smartphone to capture this critter. With these photos, I posted inquired on a local CHAT group if anyone could identify this creepy-crawly.
This morning I opened my messages and saw that one person said it was a Brown Recluse spider, a type of Violin spider which is rather poisonous. I checked where I'\d seen the spider and it had disappeared.
When I got to Parkrun, several people called me and said to be very careful as if I was bitten by this spider, I would need to seek medical help. I said that when I got home this evening and the spider was visible again, I'd catch it using a glass and then release it out in my garden.
At the shop, once I'd opened up I checked my phone and there was a most welcome message from a spider expert. He said it was a Hunter Spider and harmless. He added that it was a male hence the little knobto the right of its head.
Hunter spider on my bedroom wall last night
Harmless... ...thank goodness, because I don't kill spiders
This morning on the veranda, a lady arrived with her Maltese x Jack Russel and showed him to Missy Miscot.
It was not a good idea!
Mum, what's that panting critter?
Our kitty puffed up and hissed at the dog who ran back to his mum
after this incident Missy wanted to stay indoors
I'm linking to Saturday Critters here
HAPPY SATURDAY TO ALL CRITTERS AND MAY THEY STAY SAFE FROM HARM LIKE MY RESIDENT SPIDER AND OUR VERANDA KITTY!
