Found this little booger outside my front door. He has some big fangs.

I'd still step on it even if it was harmless because I hate spiders

It needs to be a dead spider!! No spider or snake is good unless it is dead

Thats what I thought it was. No, he was already dying. Apparently, he got into some of my insecticide around my house. He wasn't very active when I found him. Thus, the reason I was able to get good macro shots of him.

AHH! I smashed the same spider on saturday when working on my car. I absolutely hate spiders, and smash or run from ones that come near me.
