This thing was just chilling on the hood of his sweatshirt when he came in from playing outside. I smashed it with a paper towel. He didn't seem to have any bites on him. What is it? Is it a Brown Recluse I can't tell?

Shoot an IM to DrFrige with the pics, he can ID it for you, no prob.

Nuke it from orbit.

Seeing as the spider only had five legs, he was probably just trying to get a lift on your son...

You murdered a handicap spider.  








(Doesn't look like a BR, he's probably fine either way.  I have a 1 year old so I know where your coming from!)

He was fine before he came between a rock and a quilted absorbent hard place.

Kids (and those of us that act like them) need tic and spider collars.

I've had a few of those in my dark corners of the house.  I freak out over spiders, and thought for sure it was a recluse.  But yeah, that doesn't appear to be a BR, so you should be all right.


Still, just to be safe, better burn the house down, claim the insurance, move to Point Barrow and hope it's kin doesn't find you...

Not a recluse.

Dibs on his Mattel

OMFG I can't believe how bad of a parent you are!!!  First you let him get vagina all over his head & body - BEFORE he's of consenting age. Then not 20 months later, you're not supervising his every furtive move (again), and he nearly get's walked all over by a spider. What's next? letting him play in vats of dihydroxide monoxide?



SU'UMBITCH.

Speaking of handicapped spiders.......this one was in our garage yesterday.  That's a full-size spiral notebook beside it.



I found out that he could still move pretty dang fast even though he was missing a leg on each side.

that's totally not going to cover the amount of the bill.

now you gotta burn down your neighborhood. Bummer.

Ok good to hear it's not a BR. To be sure I'll just get out the aerosol can and my lighter. Spiders are my kryptonite.

It's definitely a recluse.

If that was my kid, and given my utter hate for spiders, the projectile vomit that I would have launched upon him at uber sonic speeds would have destroyed that 5 legged motherfucker (and prolly mind-fucked my kid for years).



"Dad; why did you do that?!?!?!?!?!?!......"

Yes that is a brown spider. 100% beyond a shadow of a doubt.   If the spider munched on him you'll know it in a couple of days.  Prayers sent just in case.

You're right.  If I find one with all 8 legs intact, will that suffice?  

And can you please send me back my picture since you won't accept it as payment in full?
