This, my friends, is a cane spider. That is MY finger.
I can't tell you how much courage it took me to take this picture, even with the giant spider on the other side of the glass. Large, speedy arachnids give me the creeps! (Don't get me started on centipedes...)
They are quick and hard to kill. They like to play dead. Then, when you least expect it, they race off. Eeek!
