According to this chart he is a Funnel Web Grass Spider and isn't very dangerous.

Note well: dead hornets. Do not try this with live insects. You will regret it, though possibly not for long.

I did not need to see that.

Holy.......................

I found another one in the back yard. Here are the best two (of several dozen) pictures.

He had some cool greenish/blueish highlights but non of my pictures captured it.

Toyota recalls cars due to spiders. Not as awesome as it sounds though.

Saw this on Reddit a week or two ago.

Plav,
Looks a bit like the Phidippus clarus I found at the cottage.

Yeah that does look similar. I see them all over the back yard and in the garage hunting flys.

"Give my family smallpox, will you?"

Spiders on my face having sex while I sleep. Son. Of. A. Bitch.

They were pretty legit until they said "stuffing your face-holes with Almond Joys." No one likes Almond Joys. THAT'S A FACT, JACK!

Aww, that's not creepy--that's cute!

I don't know. I mean, I'm not even that into coconut, but sometimes, dangit, I just feel like a nut.

Yeah, so just saw a news story about Black Widow spider eggs being found in packages of table grapes. And they sometimes hatch once you bring them home. Nice.

UVAS NO!

I saw something similar as a kid though not sure if they were Black Windows. Sitting at my Grandparents table doing homework when I noticed one of the grapes in the fruit bowl start pulsing. Moments later little legs started to appear. I remember shrieking a little bit....

But I like grapes. Oh my god. What if.... You know when you pop a grape in your mouth and bite it, you get that gush of juice that squirts out? What if it was a spider grape? What if it was a spider grape?

Nope. I'm done with grapes. Never again.
