8-legged Visitor

Last night a received unexpected & unwanted visit from this bad-ass spider.



I was watching the latest episode of Park and Recreation when I saw it near the window. I was trying to take it outside alive but my nephew came in with a roach killer spray and terminated the poor insect´s life. :(

I don´t know the specie. At least it wasn´t as big and dangerous as a Camel Spider which I didn´t knew existed but apparently there´s even a whole site dedicated to it: camelspiders.net. In honor to the deceased creature I leave this information on spiders from an entomologist in a Texas university: Spiders.

  18. I usually leave my spiders alone since they help kill off other nasty insects, cockroaches, flies and those blood-sucking mosquitoes.
